    So I installed my 5100's up front today. Thanks to this forum it was a breeze. I decided on setting them at 1.75". My rear-end is stock, no TSB. I didn't take any pics of the actual install, only after with everything back on. I followed the instructions on removing the front shock removal, except for disconnecting the UCA. I removed the stabilizer bar and used the hydraulic jack that came w/ the truck to push the UCA down far enough to slip the shock assembly out. Took both shocks to the local shop to have the springs swapped, cost me $50 total, not bad. Install was just the reverse, although I had to jack the UCA down much further to get the new shock in. If you are on the fence about doing this yourself, GO FOR IT. And now for the pics!

    The day I bought her, stock. The pic is reversed to help show the difference.
