    You'll love it. Might be a little stiff at first, but as soon as the coils break in, it's nothing but smooth sailing!

    Heard the radflos are even better (Toytec BOSS 2.5)

    I love my Toytec Radflo 2.5 Coilovers. Boss 2.0 are nice but if you are willing to spend a bit more it's a great upgrade.

    I saw those on Toytec. Forgive my ignorance but would having a shackle be better or worse than a AAL? I do 90% on road and will pull a 27' trailer 6 or so times a year.

    I have heard that the aal is very stiff when you don't have a load.

    You're gonna want shackles if you want to maintain whatever rake you have now unless you just want to level. Could you use bags vs AAL? Not sure as I don't tow anything.

    nothing to forgive, we've all been noobs at one point or another!

    AAL would be very stiff when you don't have a load....maybe shackles and some airbags for when you do pull that load.

    They come from Toytec set at about 3". Some people like @Sean266 have them cranked up to about 3.5".

    you don't need shims on top of a BOSS kit.....they're adjustable from 1-4"

    your buddy either got some 700lb coils and a small engine or he measured right after installation. Mine were higher right after installation, now, they're right at 3'. They'll settle down some after driving for a month or so.
