yes sir i did and i LOVE it. if it weren't this thread i would've gone with 2.5 and probably wouldn't have been as happy. gotta do the rear bilsteins in the next couple of weeks and maybe wheel spacers. what do you guys think?

That sounds great man! I installed my rears the hard way, I jacked it up from the rear and unbolted the old ones and had to compress the new 5100's by hand, my shoulders were killing me for days. You can install them yourself....fairly easy just dont recommend this way. I will let ya know how those wheel spacers work out. I am gettin some here soon

I have the tsb and was thinking of an AAL with 5100 fronts. Should i set them for 2.5 with front differential spacers?

yeah, i'll have to take a look at them. i've done shocks on my old Jeep Cherokee, shouldn't be too much harder than that, right?

please let me know how you like the spacers and post some pics.

Well after reading alot, the TSB is scheduled next Monday for my 11 DCLB 4x4. Soon to follow will be 5100s at 1.75. Currently running 265/75/16. Correct me if I'm wrong but 1.75 is level without headache of 2.5 in. (alignment etc). Will I need a diff drop for 1.75 5100s?

no diff drop needed and you will still be about .5" higher in the back. mine is almost exactly level and i don't have the TSB.

I'd Go a 16" trd wheel or aftermarket 4.5 " backspace 0 offset before spending $200 on spacers .

Why? spacers are cheaper and don't cause problems. i would love to get aftermarket wheels but don't really have the $$$ at the moment. i don't see me buying any in the near future either.

Spacers are $200 + tax . I almost went spacers but got my 16" comps for $500 OTD . If you want spacers go for it . I think the 16" trd 's backspace will work and you can pick those up used for $200 . Just remember some tire shops won't do rotations / touch em with spacers .

if you put the 5100's on before they do the tsb your get a free alignment.

I'll call the dealership and check. But why would they mess with my front end? Having trd sport shouldn't they just change rear leafs? Hell it's worth a try!

could someone please explain as if I'm a retard(cause I am) the difference between the TSB rear and AAL? I keep seeing people on here saying that they have the TSB and want to do the AAL also.

Reason I'm asking is cause I have a 09' DCSB pre/Sport that I have not done anything to and just found out about this TSB thing. Rear does ride pretty harsh in the rear loaded or unloaded and I am planning to talk to my dealer about it. Unfortunetly I'm sitting at 52k and hoping to get the TSB rear done. Would I still want to do the AAL if I get my TSB rear done? Plan is to do the 5100 set at 1.75" up front.

Thanks in advance for the help and answers.
