Just noticed Bilstein 5100s come in 2 Lengths!?

Was looking at DSMs website and just noticed rear Bilstein 5100s come in a "0-1.5 inches of lift" and a "3-4 inches of lift" option!?

I've read TONS of post about people saying if you're going to be getting a whole new leaf pack, aka All-Pro/Dakars/etc you need to go with 5125s due to their longer lengths. Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but that's not necessarily true. PLUS, you won't have to spend the extra money on a "eye to stem" conversion for the 5100s like you will the 5125s.

This being said, I think I'm getting the 3-4" 5100s to go with my All-Pro Expo pack.

I found 'em. The OP appears to be correct, they offer 2 lengths for the 5100's!

yes. There was a thing about 5100's being too "short" for lifts, then it came to light that by looking at parts numbers, there's 2 different lengths.

Theres a thread on here about a member that broke his "short" 5100s, then was compensated with "long" 5100's
