Confused-Blisten 5100's

So I just want to clarify, I can simply level my 4WD Sr5 (2011)by adding the blisten 5100's up front set at 1.75 and no need for new coils or an aal? Thanks! Zach

Yes, you'll be re-using the front springs and all hardware.

If you have a 3 leaf pack the front will probably be higher. If you have a 4 it will probably be level.

I only have a 3 leaf pack, warranty was just up when I bought her. So maybe .85 setting instead?

My experience is that what it says is vary accurate I put mine at 2.5" and I got 2.5". The lower you put the 5100 the better your ride will be. Being at 2.5" my ride is rather harsh. Measure your front center hub to bottom fender and the rear and see what the difference is. It will give you an idea of how much to lift.

Was hoping to keep cost down, I know I can AAL but rather not if I dont have to. I only haul my dirtbike so no heavy loads.

This is my truck with 265/75r16. See sig for suspension mods. These tires fit perfect under stock suspension also. Is your rear end 2 leafs and an overload or 3 leafs and an overload? If you have 3 leafs total including the overload you will sit perfectly level with the 5100 at .85 ( my truck was set there for a while). If you have 4 leafs total with the overload you may sit level at 1.75 setting...
