Nice man! Good luck! I'm hoping to get the Toytec Ultimate Lift soon and am planning on installing it myself too.

In using the 1.75 notch, are you replacing your UCA's or running stock?

What do the 5150's offer that make them a better choice than the 5100's for the rear suspension? Do they give more travel capability, or load handling vs. the 5100's?

Oh, borrow an angle grinder with an emry wheel for steel, just in case a bolt doesn't come off. The top bolt on the stock rears can be a bitch.

travel and just a better quality shock imo

5150s go up to 14" of travel. and they have a small resi to keep them cooler

Spray all the bolts with wd40 the night before. I sprayed mine three days in a row before I installed my all pro leafs this past weekend. I had no problems taking the bolts off.

I just swapped out the stock shocks for 5100s and I didn't have many problems getting the nuts off and mine was a 2010 too. But I did have some problems getting some of the nuts back on. The crown nut on the steering gave me problems on the passenger side. It would just sit and spin in the ball joint and we were struggling to find anything to hold on to to keep it in place. Then I had the bright idea to try switching the crown nuts from the driver side to the passanger side and it worked like a charm. Getting the shocks back in place was a bit of a pain too, just had to muscle it in a bit. But the backs are a piece of cake, they only took like 45 minutes, maybe an hour and we didn't even take the wheels off.

you shouldnt have any problems getting your bolts off.

my 97's bolts came off without needing wd40 or any pb.

my best advice... go over everything TWICE
