5100s + 885s + LR UCA + AAL = DONE!

I haven't worked this hard in months! I need to invest in some power tools, doing this all by myself with normal tools was a pain in the ass/back/legs/knees, but it was worth it. Took yesterday to do the rear and all day today for the front.

I already had 5100s in the front. I put the OME 885x coils @ 0 on the Bilsteins and added Light Racing UCAs. Then I added 5100s in the back along with a 2" AAL since I didn't have the TSB. I have new rims/tires on order (Duratracs & MT Classic Locks). Hopefully those will be in this week.Current tires are 265/70/16 for reference. Will take more pics tomorrow.

Oh, quick question. I will do a search too but if anyone knows....When I took my passenger shock off, I'm pretty sure it only had 1 bushing and it was the one on top, below the locking nut and washer. I didn't realize this until I did the Driver-side....b/c it had both bushings, one on top and one below. I'm planning on ordering some new bushings, just want to know if it's a big deal to drive without the bottom bushing in there.

Today: After lift



Before: 5100s @ 1.75 in front, stock coils, stock rear (non-tsb)

I'm getting 285/75/16s. I think that'll look just right.

Thanks! The measurements I took have the rear about a 1/4" higher, can't tell at all. If the coils will settle a little, I'd be happy with a little more rake in the rear.

This is what I am considering doing but people are saying it will be too high in the front. Looks level to me. But I am thinking about trying to get the TSB done first anyway.

My measurements before I lifted today were Front 36" and Rear 36.3"/36.75". So with the 5100's @ 1.75 I sat perfectly level. If you get the TSB you should definitely be good, probably a lil rake.

If I get my 285's installed this week I'll take some pics.

No vibrations, but I've only got up to about 40mph after installing, just to grab a bite. I'll give her a good run tomorrow to see how she'll do.

Did you put the top spacers in, or just Billies & coils?

No spacers, just Billies and 885x's. I had a 1/4" spacer for the driver-side lean just in-case but I didn't install it. The lean isn't that bad from what I can tell.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Damn, I forgot about the gas. I'm almost on empty LOL. I guess we'll see how bad the lean is once she's gassed up haha.
