    Default Spring question

    Recently I put a Skyjacker 2" leveling kit on the front and a rough country AAL in the back. I didnt want the rear end sagging compared to my front since there was already some sag to the original leaf pack. The aal was supposed to add 1.5 to 2 inches on the back. When I went to pick up the truck I thought holy molee it about 4" up in the back. My new keys arent maxxed out and I dont want to put them up anymore as the ride is comfortable right now. I've got sandbags in the back for a month or 2 and see how the aal settles. What I'm wondering is if I can put some extra spring clamps on to bring down the back a bit ?

    Lucky you got all that lift from an add a leaf! I only got 1 inch, because i was stupid and went out and got new springs all together for the add a leaf. They're hard as a rock.
