    Time for shocks all-around.
    Don't want lift (well, could tolerate 1" but NO MORE)
    Looking at 5100's all-around
    Should I replace the front Springs too?
    Where should I buy the parts and will the vendor install the Springs for me?
    Thanks

    Based on your preference of set up, yes, that’s perfect. Tell Marie I sent you so she can finally marry me :rofl:@HeadStrong Off-Road

    Buy the 6112/5160 combo. I was in the same boat and it’s the best decision

    That seems like an expensive option and more geared towards offroad use????

    Yeah based on the first post alone I figured he didn’t wanna get crazy into price. Which is why I didn’t recommended it.

    But anyway, OP, go with the 5100 set up you looked at, it’s great for your plans. Don’t let anyone try and upsale for stuff you won’t use.
