...i was thinking of maybe putting 5100s front and rear...just leave the rear setting at 0" and adjust the front to level it out...maybe 1.75" or 2.5"...which setting would level it out?...it would be ok if the front end was a lil lower than the back...i don't want the front higher than the back...lol...is it easy to make adjustments to the height?...or do you have to remove the shock to do it?...it is just as simple as removing stock shocks and bolting on new 5100s right?....or is it something i would have to get done at a shop?....i guess you can't lift the rear of the truck with just 5100s...would have to use a block or aal?...also how much would it cost for 4 5100 shocks?....sorry for all the questions...lol

In response to KilGoja

1.75" front with stock springs and it will almost be dead level and the nose will still be down a hair.
Highly recommend you have a shop do it with a wall mounted spring compressor to be on the safe side and you will need an alignment anyway because you are changing the ride height.
You can only adjust the height while the shock is separated from the factory spring and top hat, not once it is installed.
Spring rate on the factory springs is around 500 lbs and that is why I recommend you have a shop do it.If that spring decides to come out, it will be in a hurry..
PM us for Forum member pricing so I do not get in any more trouble...HA,HA,HA
