where can you get them and will it correct sagging if you put it on both springs on the rear or front. Will it make it the same so one side isn't lower or higher than the other?
Thanks for your help

I cant suggest a good source, but I can help a little with the lean thing. When you get your AALs, look at your truck and note the low side. Then carefully match up the AALs and find the tallest of them. There will probably be a little bit of difference in the leaves, production tolerances always have a +/- of a few thousandths. Install the tallest leaf on the lowest corner etc. It seems kinda silly, but on my last two trucks (Tacomas, they lean just like cruisers) I installed OME suspension on both, the first one I just grabbed parts and bolted them on. It leaned almost an inch. On the second, I did what I'm describing here, and it's within 1/4" from side to side. Make the production tolerances work for you, not against you.

Stock front springs in decent condition are a source for AAL. Pull one of the long leaves and add that to a rear spring pack.

I checked on shipping the add-a-leafs from Man-A-Fre and it almost cost more for the shipping. What i did was go to a spring shop and get a full length leaf - it was cheaper and a much better ride.

yup - I got them rearched (1 1/2 over the orginal free arch) and a full length leaf added, painted - gave me 3inches over stock. $295. Dropped them off on a Tuesday and picked them up on that thursday.
