I was debating between .85 and 1.75 to just level the truck or keep just a little rake. I'm glad I went with .85. I know the shocks are set at the 2nd adjustment (.85) and the coil seats are not upside down. I like the look, but wasn't expecting quite that much lift at .85. Here are my measurements (ground to fender on level surface).

Stock coils, stock shocks, stock rear springs, stock Bridgestones (32 psi):
LF = 34.50"
RF = 34.75"
LR = 36.75"
RR = 36.75"

Stock coils, stock shocks, stock rear springs, Duratrac 265/70/17 (35 psi):
LF = 35.25"
RF = 35.50"
LR = 37.50"
RR = 37.50"

Stock coils, 5100's set at .85, stock rear springs, Duratrac 265/70/17 (35 psi):
LF = 36.75"
RF = 37.00"
LR = 37.50"
RR = 37.50"

So, bottom line, I got 2.25" of lift from 5100's set at .85 (1.50") and 265/70/17 Duratracs (0.75"). CV's changed a little, but not too bad.

One other question. To the naked eye, camber looks fine. Truck also drives perfectly straight on the highway. It doesn't wander or pull to either side. Do you think I should still have my alignment checked? I'm really happy how it looks, rides, and drives.

After 5100's


Looks good! Keep it there. I bet it will settle and you'll probably end up going to the next setting.
