I've had the TSB less than two months and 800 miles. I'm glad I only set the front 5100's at the .85" setting. The rear is only about 1.25" taller now. This is only after a couple heavy 400# loads.

However I love the ride and handling with the 5100's all around and the TSB installed.

Anytime you put new leaf springs in - they will settle over time. That's just the natural characteristic of leaf springs. They're always higher whe you first put them on.

I had my TSB done back in November. It was ass-high right after the install. I ran 210lbs of sand in the bed over the winter and it's settled to be perfect with just a little rake in the back.

I did not do anything to the front. Still bone stock.
