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.

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.

AALs are a temporary fix. They will provide some lift, but they are not bent on the same arc as the stock leaves. Additionally, most AAL kits are not full-size leaves, so there is quite a bit of stress on the pack. Eventually, the leaves will crack in half.

The more permanent fixes are either to get full-sized leaves added (a spring shop will forge new leaves and rearch the entire pack) or get complete replacement packs.
