Can anyone tell me if my front 5100’s are installed correctly? I had a local shop do the install but I didn’t get a good feeling from them on this job. I asked them to put it on the .85 lift so the truck would be close to level (I do not have the tsb 4 leaf in the rear, stillthe 3 leaf) and it looks like it is in fact on correct .85 notch now as I asked.
The problem is the truck rides like crap after the install- its bouncy, loose, rough, loud and on big bumps I can feel what seems like the shocks “pop” like its topping out and it feels like something is smacking the fender. Its almost undriveable. I took it to another “big”tire chain to have the alignment performed and tires rotated a day after andthey told me the fronts were not installed correctly and that I shouldn’t have any of the top shaft showing as it is. The guy says it looks like I’m not riding on my shocks at all but just the spring and the tires which might be why it seems so off. Something about with that much bolt showingthe shocks won’t even kick in until 2 ½ of movement is taken up?????
Am I missing a spacer or do I need a spacer, when I looked at doing the 5100’s and just going upone notch to .85 no one really even mentioned I needed to do anything specialto make it work right and that the parts in the kit provided by billstein wouldbe enough? If I have them take it backto stock height would I be in the clear here or is the whole thing messedup????
Sorry for all the questions, I searched a bunch but didn’t findwhat I need to know. Hope someone herecan help.
