    How do 1/2 in addaleafs affect overall ride and comfort of the vehicle?? Do they make it alot softer and bouncier? If i bought the k5 w/ 5.5 blocks and .5 add a leafs should i upgrade to springs and get rid of the blocks and AAL's? The ride is quite bouncy, But my dad gave me the final OK and im buying the k5 next weekend, Its a 87 k5 w/ the sm465 , 35 bfg muds. It's in really good condidont too! It's awesome!
    Thanks guys

    My experiance has been that add-a-leafs make the ride stiffer. I have 2 1/2" adds on my 84 and no more fillings in my mouth. And I am not a big fan of blocks either. I say go with new springs.
