    I was contemplating the exact same thing. I had exactly 2.25 inches between the rear and the front after I had the TSB done. I was worried about the back end settling out a bit and me being left with a nose high truck. I went with Bilstein 5100's set at 1.75 and I'm left with a half inch of rake rear to front. Can't see it with the naked eye and I think it looks the way it should have from the factory. The Billies cost less then that damn spacer kit too.

    If you look at the photos in my profile you can see the tape measure before and after TSB. I only really had a net 3/4" gain in the rear. Many have said they got 1.5 or more... The photos were taken the day after teh TSB was done. My front is set at 1.75 and it sets exactly like I want it to set. The ride is very good.... very pleased with the end result.

    I have new Mickey Thompson ATZ 265/75/16s waiting to be mounted. I am trying to decide if I want new wheels before I mount them...

    Nope, not a thing. 5100's for the front. 172.99 shipped from downsouth motors with the forum discount. No vibration or other strange stuff. Just make sure you get it aligned. I showed up to get the alignment about thirty minutes after I put the Billies in and the tech asked me what the hell I hit...
