    still trying to figure things out. most of this rig is as i bought it. Here are some picts of my 60. these are 33's.

    are these springs and shackles stock? i assume i should have more clearance. would a re-arch with AAL give me the clearance i need? how much is maximum arch i can do and still keep everything stock except shocks and shackles?

    yes. the springs and shackles are stock. get a LONG add-a-leaf and you'll be fine. Most of the folks running 33's on stock suspension are running 10.5 wide instead of 12.5 wide tires.

    Isn't this question a sticky yet?

    Search next time, this question has been asked eleventy-billion times already.

    yup like he said stock and yea lots of guys are running the long ad a leafs. i guess re-arching just is economical of desired for many.

    On the AALs, are you guys suggesting the longs for a softer ride? Why not the shorts?

    shorts are very harsh and dont flex well at all... only good for tow rigs.

    Ahhh, I just got some 33s for my truck and ordered the small AALs, but, this truck is also going to be my tow rig for the Rally Rabbit ;)
