2). Best settings to set them on????
3). Any suggestions that you might have will be appriciated.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

1.75" for the fronts. Get an AAL or the rear spring TSB for the rear. Will raise it a little and level it out.

Search 5100 and read up!

^^^ The items for sale are all OEM parts. So it isn't anything different that the OP is currently running.

I don't think you qualify for the TSB. AAL or getting a new leaf pack depending on what condition yours are in right now.

I just put my 5100s on today at the 2.5" setting. I'm glad I did because otherwise I would have had too much rake with the 2" AAL. As it is now, I'm hoping the leafs settle a bit because I'm still not close to level.
