rough country

I spoke with ken Shupe the guy who will be installing the rough country 4.5 inch lift. He said that he has never had any problems with the Rough Country AAL sagging. He also said is the reason in sags is when inexpirenced people install the lifts by themselves. So i guess i will be going with the rough country lift.

One- AAL will sag over a period of time!! Two- Of course he is going to tell you that, so that he gets paid to install the kit!! Spring packs ride alot better than AAL's and perform better!!! Remember that you always get what you pay 4!!

I agree, AAL always sag over time, but you can run the AAL until you can afford the rear leafs.

Of course the guy is gonna tell you that! What were you expecting to hear... "you can do this yourself for a lot cheaper than what I'm gonna charge you"? Hell no! He knows you'll be back when your AAL is saggin and he'll make another dollar off of you.

The reason for the sagging is that the AAL is the only new leaf in the pack. That one leaf has the job of maintaining a the increased arch of the pack. The older leafs are not helping enough to keep the AAL arched.

With new packs, the leafs are all helping to maintain teh correct arch of the lift. A full pack will even eventually sag, but it would be years before anything like that of a AAL.
