Billies ordered

Billies ordered
Hello Forum,
I ordered the 5100's yesterday and they are scheduled to arrive next week. I will have them installed once I get them and I will take pics. I currently have Timbrens, EZ990 #981 AAL, & BFG A/T's 265/75r16. The current height specs:


l.f. 35.25 (thanks to ToyTec 1/4" spacer on top of l.f. strut)
r.f. 35.25
l.r. 37.75
r.r. 37.50

The Hellwig kit gave me 1.5"'s of lift and the u-bolts are tightened down to where they touch those rectangular leaf spring clamps. If it werent for those I would tighten the HELLWIGS down closer to the OEM leafs. I thought of taking them off since the u-bolts from the AAL will keep the springs straight. I have the original 2 spring + 1 overload set up.

My question is:
What would be the ideal setting for the Billies and still have some rake?
.85 or 1.75?

Thanks

I also installed 1.5" AAL.

However, without any spacers, I put the billies on the 2.5" settings. I have a little bit of rake. Here's a couple pics.





Don't know if this helps. haha

Yes, it does. Thanks! And I love that movie. It was actually better than the 1st Pet Detective IMO!
