As you'll find here - many have their own opinions on what looks best. You'll have to do the same. There are many pics here on TW with 5100's set at 0.85" and 1.75". You'll have to see what *you* like best.

With that said I'm set at 1.75" and have the rear TSB completed. I'm sitting level...this look works well for me.

Post up some pics and share your install experience once completed.

You may sit a bit nose high at 1.75 without either the TSB or an AAL for the rear.

hmmm well .85 is better than what i've got now, and i'm sick of the raked look, i guess the + side of this route is a problem free alignment

I have suspension TSB and billies @ 1.75, front is one inch higher. I am now waiting for UPS to drop off my Toytec 1 1/2 AALs and rear billies. I should sit 1/2 high in rear after that .
