So my Billy 5100s should be arriving next week, and I have read several threads about what height should the Billy be set at if running no AAL/block/etc. on the back to correct the factory rake. Some insist that the 1.75" is the safest bet with stock suspension in the back. However, I have read several people who say to go with 2.5" because after "a couple of months" the Billys "settle" down closer to 2.0".
The other variable that I have to factor is the weight of my brush guard on the front. While it is roughly ~50lbs, I am torn between going with 1.75" or 2.5" IF the Billys will settle AND taking into account the added weight of the brushguard.
Thus, my question is those who have Billys, what are your experiences with the Billys settling, how much if any did they settle (most common measurement is 1/2 an inch), and if any who have a brushguard, did that impact the height?
Everyones insight is most welcomed.
