    Time has come to replace the shocks on my 06 TRD DC/OR. I believe they are the OME Bilsteins with 3" Procomp front spacers & rear AALs. I'm thinking 5100s. Do I remove the spacers/AALs or leave them in?:confused: If I leave them in and adjust the 5100s to 2.75" does that give me 5.75" of lift or just overextend the shock to begin with? The OME shocks are beat and need replaced but is the ProComp lift contributing to the shitty ride? I know this is probably covered somewhere in this forum but I can't find it.
