    That means you will be right in the middle..
    So you can either run the 0" to 1.5" rears and you should be ok if you are not going to be driving off road. You run the risk of the shock acting as a limit strap and that will damage the shock quickly..
    Or you can try and run the extended length 5100's and modify your bumpstops so that the suspension bottoms out before the shock does..
    Or you may need to go with a different brand of shock for the rear..
    Thank you,
    Sonny

    10-4 no problem just figured id ask, i just ordered.

    Put a 3" aluminum spacer on last week and rides absolutely terrible now so going to take those off and put 5100s on hope it will ride better and give the same look.
