    I haven't worked this hard in months! I need to invest in some power tools, doing this all by myself with normal tools was a pain in the ass/back/legs/knees, but it was worth it. Took yesterday to do the rear and all day today for the front.

    I already had 5100s in the front. I put the OME 885x coils @ 0 on the Bilsteins and added Light Racing UCAs. Then I added 5100s in the back along with a 2" AAL since I didn't have the TSB. I have new rims/tires on order (Duratracs & MT Classic Locks). Hopefully those will be in this week.Current tires are 265/70/16 for reference. Will take more pics tomorrow.

    Oh, quick question. I will do a search too but if anyone knows....When I took my passenger shock off, I'm pretty sure it only had 1 bushing and it was the one on top, below the locking nut and washer. I didn't realize this until I did the Driver-side....b/c it had both bushings, one on top and one below. I'm planning on ordering some new bushings, just want to know if it's a big deal to drive without the bottom bushing in there.

    Today: After lift

    Before: 5100s @ 1.75 in front, stock coils, stock rear (non-tsb)

    Yup, added the pic for reference.


    I'm getting 285/75/16s. I think that'll look just right.

    Thanks! The measurements I took have the rear about a 1/4" higher, can't tell at all. If the coils will settle a little, I'd be happy with a little more rake in the rear.

    This is what I am considering doing but people are saying it will be too high in the front. Looks level to me. But I am thinking about trying to get the TSB done first anyway.

    Damn I got the same set up in the front aside from the arms. I was thinking 265's but Im not sure now. Gotta see how the 285's look on there now

    My measurements before I lifted today were Front 36" and Rear 36.3"/36.75". So with the 5100's @ 1.75 I sat perfectly level. If you get the TSB you should definitely be good, probably a lil rake.

    If I get my 285's installed this week I'll take some pics.

    No vibrations, but I've only got up to about 40mph after installing, just to grab a bite. I'll give her a good run tomorrow to see how she'll do.

    Dude the 5100's at 0 and the 885x's ride like a dream. So smooth. Took a couple days to really break in the coils but now I have a hard time not avoiding going over bumps fast haha!

    I have 265/70r17's now. Looking forward to seeing what 285's will look like on it.

    Did you put the top spacers in, or just Billies & coils?

    No spacers, just Billies and 885x's. I had a 1/4" spacer for the driver-side lean just in-case but I didn't install it. The lean isn't that bad from what I can tell.

    Damn, I forgot about the gas. I'm almost on empty LOL. I guess we'll see how bad the lean is once she's gassed up haha.

    you may have to do some trimming of the fender liners. i just got my classic lock blacks mounted up with 285/70/17 fierce attitudes and they are going to rub unless i trim them out a bit with the 5100's set @ 2.75 w/ stock springs. The good news is that the offset of the classics clear the factory uca's. I will tell you that they will look mean as hell on the truck. You'll love them!:D
