Question 3" AAL Cracked

I bought the first 3" AAL of Greg a couple years ago. Now the lower leaf on both sides of the truck are cracked clear in two. What could cause this? My truck is on the street 90% of the time.

It can happen over time. They are on a lot of stress.

That's what I was thinking. If I want to keep the same amount of lift or maybe even a little more, what would I need to order?

I'm at 41 1/2 with 2" Alcan, 2" shackle and 2" body lift.
Just tell Alcan you want 3" of lift and 400 lb. extra capacity

I'm setting at 42" right now but that's with a BL. I'd like to stay at that height or maybe a little bit more in case it would settle. I don't want a saggy butt. Thanks guys.

My alcans haven't settled in over a year and half of towing camping and wheeling....
