I have 09 CrewCab....without the three leafs in rear, I set my 5100 on first setting .85 I think, the truck ended up level. If you go with second setting, your front end will be higher,,,,,,,bought a camper shell, set on the truck, and front is about 1/2 inch higher than rear.....this is on first setting....FYI

Okeetee, I agree with ChamYota.. Any time you change a suspension component I would recommend getting an alignment.

This kit is straight forward, you do not need any other parts. You will need a wall mounted spring compressor in order to remove the coils off the stock strut assembly, then insert the new 5100. Or have a shop that has the equipment and has this tool do it for you, other than that, it is 3 bolts on top of the strut and on at the bottom. As far as parts, you are good to go with just the 4 shocks. Set the fronts at the desired lift height you are looking to obtain and install the rears.

Any other question please let me know.

OK, did that before and saw 309 but thought with TW discount it was 299. Does that come in during checkout with some code or another or is 309 the TW discounted price?

I know there is sometimes the slightly more expensive "bilstien 5100s".......and slightly cheaper "rcd bilstien 5100s"......but other than that, there isn't a discount I know of.

Dsm doesn't offer a discount anymore, explained in this thread
