Don't bother with the AAL. If your springs are sagging now, they'll be sagging later too.

Check out the link at the top of this page. DiscountJeepParts.com. Also, check out 4WD Hardware at www.4wd.com and Quadratec at www.quadratec.com.

SD is probably standard duty. I don't know how one rides compared to the other.

SD = Standard Duty

I ran the HD springs in mine for about a year (got them from quadratec). HD springs came with the towing package. It's not quite as soft at the SD spring and is less prone to sagging. Still, the ride is not harsh at all. In fact, they ride pretty much identical to SD spring.

I'm selling mine, but they have been modified to give 3" worth of lift. Even so, the ride was very smooth.

Anywayz, if you are going to replace your leafs, go with the HD springs.

Oh yea, they will bolt right in too. Wink
