anyone install 5100's and have 0 issues?

Seems like from what I hear so many people have issues with this install. I'm looking to get 5100's all around at 2.5" with toytec 2" AAL's in the rear. Just wondering if anyone has done this install and worked out without issues.

0 problems here.
Oh there is 1 thing, it now handles very well in the corners, doesn't nose dive when stoping hard and handles ruff roads with out dancing all over the place.

What are all the issues you are hearing with the install? It was pretty straight forward.

I didn't have any issues other than installing the spring perches upside down the first time.

No real problems, other than me being dumb and forgetting to install the driver-side spacer the first time around. Had to take that one off and do it again but the install itself was very smooth, even without a helper. Then, a week later I decided I didn't like the setting I had on the front so I did it all over again.

New pics on page 8 of that post. Just follow the steps Chris posted and reference those pics... easy.
