    I'm planning to go up to 33's later this summer and I don't really want a lift. But I figure I could do add-a-leafs front and rear and get at least a little more clearance. I don't need to worry about changing anything like pitman arms or anything with the add-a-leafs do I? I don't want to deal with anything like that I just want a bit more clearance.

    i have a six inch lift i built on just add-a-leafs i started off with a 4inch lift i got the leaf for a jeep and threw it on to give me 4 inches then i got one from a 93 ford bronco fliped it 180 degrees and to make a six inch as long as your add-a-leaf isnt bigger than 4 inches youll be fine

    I'm just looking at the 2.5" Pro-Comp add-a-leafs. I don't have any lift or anything. And I've seen that 33's can fit with no lift, but I figure adding 2.5" with add-a-leafs couldn't hurt. But I only want to do it if it won't affect drive line angles and stuff. If it does I'll just do 33's with no lift at all.
