Bilstein 5100s at 1.75 with stock rear suspension

Here is a pick of my truck with newly installed 5100s at 1.75 and a 100% stock rear suspension, it sits pretty much level.

Talking

This is good to know. I'm getting Bilsteins on all corners but want to lift with eibachs. I have a double cab so am hoping for 1.6" of lift n the front. I was worried that I would sit nose high...I'm glad to see that u r 1.75" in the front and about level

Do you guys feel like it goes nose-high whenever you put a load in the back? I'm looking at getting this set up soon, I don't haul heavy stuff very much but I don't want to end up with a major bro-lean whenever I do.

My truck is pretty much level, may even be slightly nose high but it isn't noticeable. Without a more substantial leaf pack in the back I would almost guarantee it would be very noticeably nose high.

Dosent feel any different to me to be honest not stiffer or anything, just feels higher lol, i see more of the hood now witch always makes me feel nose high but its really not so i don't mind. I don't tow anything but if i ever did id prob get an AAL OR something for the rear if need be the rear is easier to install than the front so I'm not worried about thAT. Other than that my door closes easier so i keep slamming it by accident.

Looks sick fellas. Did you have to buy coils or just shocks?

Think just shocks. 1.75" of lift is 1 option on the adjustable 5100's (0,0.85,1.75,2.5) Eibach springs will give u 1.6" and OME springs will give u 2" depending on which springs u get. with the Bilsteins set at 0 of course. This subject is thoroughly discussed

You're in san diego so you may be a bro. If you are a bro, then lift it 2.5''. Just know that as soon as you drive your truck out of SD everyone laughs at you for your truck being nose high.
