Yo, brother ND. I'm skeptical about a lot of people on the TN board and this one who did the 2.5 setting on those 5100's and said they were level. Perhaps my truck was built on the moon but myself and others have it set at 1.75 and STILL
the front is 1/2" higher than the rear.
I waited for months now to see about suspension settling and still the same. I ordered the Toytec 1" lift block for the rear and will install that this weekend. This should give me a 1/2" rake toward the front which is how I like it.
If I were you bro I would NOT go over 1.75...in fact if I would do it again I would lower it to the third setting at 0.85.
So, the major issue (besides irritating me whenever I look at at and it seems only I can notice it) is my headlights. I BLIND
people (which gets me to thinking...anyone know how to adjust the headlights on our trucks? I can't find an adjustment screw anywhere). I get headlights flicked on in the opposite direction dozens of times a night and when behind some people they get really pissed off. They think my high beams are on until I nail them with my real high beams and my fogs (which are Xenons). This is all because I have a slight rake upwards toward the front.
Yeah, yeah part of me enjoys it.
