Talking 5100 Reg cab install pics

I fitted the front 5100's on last night at 1.75" and got right at 2" of lift in the front. I am sitting 1/2" high in the front. I am putting the 1.5" AAL on tomorrow night so I should have about the factory rake.

Before



After



I will post pics when the AAL is in. Let me know what you think

Well I was under the impression they were 32's but we measured the height last night and they were like 30 1/4?? 265/75/16's and I'm not sure on the backspacing or any of that. I don't know alot about how the actual height is calculated. I am hoping to get 2" of lift with the AAL but we shall see.

You can't measure tire height with the truck sitting on them. Has to be unloaded.

Looks good. I like the white letters out in your particular configuration.

I am actually thinking about turning them in when I get it balanced. I may black them out on paint and see what it looks like first.

Not at all. I had psyched myself out of using the spring compressor but it was really not that bad. I used a ratchet on the first side but got brave and used an air tool on the other side. If I went back and did it again I would say it would take an hour to 1 1/2 hours. FYI my springs have 75k miles on them.

None at all. It's funny before I did this a had steering wheel shake at 60-65 mph which is now gone. My tires are very pigeon toed now but I am going to get them balanced on Saturday after the AAL. It seems to be about the same firmness in ride quality but the bumps are quite as harsh if that makes any sense. No doubt due to the better shock. I didn't notice it wandering around the road either so I don't think you have anything to worry about. I was afraid to go with 2.5 though for fear of needing new UCA's but most say it is hit or miss.
