So, what shock did Sonny say to go with? Also, I couldn't find info on the length and valving of the 5100's that everyone's getting (BE5-C478-T0), so if anyone has this info I'd appreciate it. I just realized that the OP might be running stock height in rear?? I'm looking at doing a 2" AAL, so can I just do a 2" longer 5125 than a stock length? I'm also assuming if it's the same valving ratio and just a longer shock it will ride the same?? Also, what's the eye-to-pin adapter or whatever that we need? I guess I should just call Sonny too

Hey Thanks for the comment, but I must tell you it was all props to Sonny when it came to choosing this set up. Every truck may differ. Measure your stock shock eyelit to eyelit, and he will square you away. But, in sayin that; Im pretty sure that the 255/70 valving is standard for single shock setup, and 10" Travel will be suffice for TSB w/AAL.

I'm running this set up & have no complaints both on and offroad. I hit the speedbumps w/no worries, and enjoy the uneven pavements of my daily travel

But none the less, contact Sonny @ DSM, just to CYA.. ICSH...
