1- what are the downsides of getting blisteins front and back?opposed to front only or aal in the back 5100s in the front.
2- why do some only get them on the front other then price; are there any problems mechanically you can run into just getting the front? how many inches to level a trd sport with the back?
3-what kind of issues can you run into with running these shocks? do they put stress on other parts of the truck that could void your warranty?
4- Compared to spacers , how do they differ in terms of functionality, wear/ negatiove effects on other components.
1-adding 5100s in the back has nothing to do with aal...they don't raise the rear end at all....the aal does....the are just better shocks than the stock ones
2-people get them front only to level out the truck....you can raise the front with them but not the rear...prolly the .85 setting would level out a prerunner and 1.75 setting levels out a 4x4....the 4x4 sits lower in the front because of the added weight of the front diff
3-these shocks don't do any damage to your truck
4-the ride with these will be way better than a spacer lift
i got the 5100s front and back....i also have OME883 lifting springs up front...i set the 5100s on the 0 setting and i still get 1.75" of lift in the front due to the springs....i didn't raise the back end at all.....i have a reg cab...there is no tsb for the reg cab....the ride is as smooth as stock and the truck handles alot better with less body roll and stuff
