5100 settings without rear spring TSB

My 2007 is no longer eligible for the TSB. My rear springs are a bit saggy. I have Firestone Ride-Rites for towing/hauling. Currently running some 16" steel wheels with 265/75/16 Duratracs with no issues.

My stock shocks are toast. Tons of body roll and a very jouncy ride.

I want to replace my shocks with the end result being increased ride comfort primarily and maybe a lift/level if it can be done without impacting ride comfort. I drive 20,000 miles a year.

Would 5100s all around with the fronts set at .85 do it? Should I leave them at zero?

I seem to remember someone on here saying that the rear 5100's are designed for a lift in mind and don't perform well at stock height. Any validity to that?

Thanks,
Trent

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Measure teh rear, and see how much higher it is than the front. If its 1" or more, the .85" setting would be fine.

Dunno about leaving the 5100's at zero, but when I had them at 1.75 w/o the rear TSB, I had a 3/4" negative rake. I concur with Chris on the .85 setting.
