    I had some 265/75/16 Duratracs put on yesterday, and am on the list for 5100s from DSMS. 5100s and the rear TSB are a few of the last on my list of mods for the truck. Ive been sifting through all the 5100 threads this morning sorting out all the pictures.

    I know this has been asked before, but the pics and info are scattered, so I was hoping to get an updated one.

    Anyone have pics of 5100s and the REAR AAL TSB?

    Specifically im looking at 1.75 with 265/75 tires, but show me what you got! I wanna know what Im looking at before I get the 5100s and go through ht he whole process of installing etc.

    Many thanks!

    TSB and 5100s set at .85

    I was looking at setting them at 1.75, because after the TSB the back end of my truck raised 1.5 inches.
    But about a week later when i went to install the 5100s, I remeasured the back end and it was only 1 inch higher then stock.
    So wanting to keep things as close to stock, i set the 5100s at .85.
    I think either the .85 or the 1.75 setting works fine. It depends it you want to retain the stock slope or try and even the front up more with the 1.75 setting. Have read that some say the truck may sit nose high with a load in the bed at 1.75.
    As far as the 2.5 setting, they all look like they are nose high afterwards to me with just the TSB.

    I have the rear leaf TSB, and no Bilstiens. You would think my rear end would be higher than it sits currently. I don't have any weight in the back besides my cap (and my dog if you look close). I'm thinking of looking into Bilsteins at .85 with the Toytec AAL for TSB. It's supposed to give 1.5" of lift, but I'm hoping it would setting just a little and give a little rake. Anyone have the Toytec AAL for TSB?

    I saw that, unfortunately I can't put the money into it right now. I'm sure they will have another sale in the next few months.

    Well from what most people say is that you set the 5100s @ 1.75 to be LEVEL with the TSB rear springs. From what I see even at 1.75 it is still way lower. There was one pic though that looked close to level, but it was still like 1/2 inch lower up front.

    i don't have any pics right now but i have a dc short bed with 5100s at 1.75 and tsb settled. sometimes i wish i had set it at .85 because at a full tank of fuel the back is very level and sometimes i think my truck looks nose high with full tank. but with half a tank i have a little rake.

    I finally got my 5100's installed on my 2009. Here is a pic with the 5100's set at 1.75, Rear TSB, and 265/65/16 tires. Looks like new tires will be my next purchase.

    These look like the 16" OR rims. Are you sure you have your tire size right?
