    alright well pat yourselves on the back cause you just pushed me into getting a pair of 5100's for the front of my 06 AC, i dont think my truck has the TSB done on the rear and i really just wanna level my truck out with these shocks, so.... what should i set them at? 1.75?


    basically i'm looking to level the truck out ;)

    As you'll find here - many have their own opinions on what looks best. You'll have to do the same. There are many pics here on TW with 5100's set at 0.85" and 1.75". You'll have to see what *you* like best.

    With that said I'm set at 1.75" and have the rear TSB completed. I'm sitting level...this look works well for me.

    Post up some pics and share your install experience once completed.

    yeah i've seen this, just came across a thread with a truck just like mine, it seemed to look pretty good at 1.75, then i see some that look got at .85 lol i'd rather not have to tear it apart again to change it

    You may sit a bit nose high at 1.75 without either the TSB or an AAL for the rear.
