It will probably sag after a year too. IMO you might as well just get all new springs and fix the problem rather than bandage it for a while.

I'd do it right the first time and not look back. If AAL's were as good as new then they wouldn't bother making new ones.

i've got the rusty's 3 inch aal and it seemed to improve my ride and no sagging yet, if u have a tight budget like me i'd go for it, if aal were complete junk they wouldnt bother offering them
