Bilstein 5100 shocks all the way around?

I'm looking at getting a 1.5" aal in the rear, and would it be better to just get the front shocks rather than getting front and rear?

Rear 5100 are too short. They have a nice ride though.

Yep, im pretty sure 5100s are only good for 0-1" lift in the back, so youll want to look at the longer versions like the 5125 or 5150s, not sure which one of those two but look around on google

The standard length will work with a 1.5 AAL. I'm running them on mine with a non TSB 1.5 AAL with no issues.

Except the loss of travel. If your goal is a shkrt travel street truck there is no downside. Most people will want improved articulation though.

My truck is far from a street truck. I don't own a 4 wheeler and from September to February(deer and duck season) and again in April and May(Turkey season) my truck is offroad weekly.

Before you guys get all excited, you should probably refer to the correct parts for a 1st gen, not a 2nd gen.

OP, here is the link to the 1st gen full set of all four, says the rears will work with 1.5 AAL, but bumpstops may need some mod:

I have 5100s now adding 1.5 AAL

I have the 5100s on the front at the 1.75 which leveled the truck out when installed a few years back. The rear leafs are spent so I purchased a 1.5 AAL. How will the performance match up? I guess my truck won't be leveled any more, but the back is so soft now I needed to do something with the leaves.
