In need of some TW knowledge...

currently I have stock suspension with a spacer giving me about 2"
I have been saving up money for a couple months and am in need of some advice. I will be purchasing some billy 5100 all around soon and am wondering if i should replace my aal aswell? Also i need to figure out what length shocks to get???



Left


Right


also what coils and shock setttings would be the best to preserve my current lift because I have no intention of going over 2"



ANY feedback would be greatly appreciated
this is my first truck and TW has some great members so speak up!

Other than installing the shocks you don't need to do anything else. The 5100 for the front allows you to remove the spacer on top of the coil. Leave the AAL as is. I suggest you jack up the rear using the frame and with the rear shocks disconnected on the bottom see if they still fit or are they too short. If too short measure the length from the top and bottom mounts, that will give you the extended length needed, add 1/2 to 1 inch extra. Measure the collapsed length and add the difference between the shock when extended and bottom mount. Bilstein has a 5125 series that will work. Remember the stock rear shocks are different lengths. The RR is 13-20.5 inches and the LR is an inch shorter on an 04 4x4. A Bilstein 5125 series F4-BE5-6253-H5 is 14.06 collapsed and 22.5 extended. A Bilstein 5125 series F4-BE5-A463-H5 is 15.11 collapsed and 24.35 extended.
