springs are about the only thing i'd trust from Rustys. i've been running their 6" leafs for a few years now and have been really happy with them. i may have my set up for sale soon, only because i may be lowering my XJ a little.

there is the real problem....any add a leaf out there on the market is crap imo.

if you buy the complete spring pack from rustys im sure you will have great results.

AAl's are only as good as the spring pack they are going into ... if you start with sagging , old , twisted , bent springs you are only putting a Band-Aid on the problem , The AAL's can only support them so long before they sag also ... If you have good springs and want to add lift , AAL's are a good / cheap idea !
