5100's are a better quality shock then the stockers and can provide different amount of lift.

Those top plate spacers are better than pre load spacers as they will not affect your ride...but it you are thinking about wheeling your truck at all....think about shocks/springs instead of spacers. They cost a bit more...but it's worth every penny.

So that kit in the link would be good for somebody who wants a good looking lift and doesn't want to go offroad much?

Well I'm not a big wheeler but go off road occasinally and do not want to have to worry about it so I guess I need to stick with suspension.......

I would recommend the 5100's over the spacer lift any day...and I don't even have them. The 5100's are a FAR better shock then the stock (even TRD) shocks. It'll improve the ride, stock setting or otherwise.

Cheaper to do the spacers...but why not get the improved ride too??

Very true, so all I would need to buy is the shocks correct? No springs UCA's or anything like that?

So I think I will get the 5100's all the way around set the front at 1.75 and do nothing to the rear(non TSB truck). What ya think?

right now the front measures 34&3/4 from ground to bottom of fender and the rear is 36&1/2
