Down South Motorsport's 5100 purchase

Anyone ever deal with these folks? They have a great price on 5100's.

Also anyone have a pic of a 2013 TRD OR stock rims leveled using 5100's

Thanks for any feedback.

Highly recommended. Check the vendor section, and the vendor reviews. Lots of happy customers.

Shoot all i did was call them and from that conversation alone, i can tell they are committed to good customer service. I'd refer them to anyone.

Thanks for the positive feedback I have been trying to decide weather to level with a spacer kit or go the 5100 route. The deciding factor was with all the reading I have done on this forum I could never find a solid answer about using a block kit, however lots of good info on taking the 5100 route.

And for that I thank you all.

I would go with 5100's over spacer or block any day.

+1,000,000,000 on the 5100's. Best thing I did to my truck so far! They are a fantastic vendor online and in person.

I work right across the freeway from them and went in to get a quote and ended up just paying them right then and there. Well worth the money. I paid $320 or so for all four. I decided to lift mine the right way to 2.5" with these. I read too much negative feedback on the spacers and even my mechanic agreed they don't lift the truck naturally and it messes up more then just alignment. Hope this helps some.

I just received my 5100s from them earlier this week. Called them at one point to check status and they were extremely polite and professional. Seems like a good company.

Anytime.

And thanks! Id say its a "healthy" looking lift nothing crazy, but sets it apart from bone stock trucks.

Stretched I'm guessing means long bed? haha

DSM is an awesome business with awesome staff/customer service.

Ill put it this way, even when they didn't have the parts I needed, they kept in touch via email to make sure I was able to track the part down.

Dsm has gotten parts for people in a pinch....we had a member who's strut snapped (stock with a spacer).....dsm was out of 5100s, but made a few phone calls for our member and found a set for him and got his truck on the road in time for him to get to work.

They have the best prices and customer support ever.....the knowledge there is insane!

Even tho they have the best prices around, id still order from them if there was another authorized shop selling the same stock for less..... The crew at DSM is unlike any shop I've ever dealt with.
