    5100's at 1.75, Firestone Destination AT 265/75/16


    Just got the 5100's installed at 1.75 and firestone destination at 265/75/16. No tsb.

    After reading through many posts about the best way to level the front end, I decided to go with the 5100's. Thanks to everyone on here, I love this place!
    Ordered them from downsouth motorsports and 2 days later the ups guy is at my door :eek:, that was fast! I thought the 5100's might be too harsh at 1.75, but boy was I wrong. Was definately $ well spent. Truck rides better than new in my opinion, is smooth as silk, soaks up the bumps very nicely and front end is level! I love it! :D

    Thanks for posting this Frank. Looks great! This is what I wanted to do to mine to level it out but was worried about the ride with the 5100's being too harsh.

    Thanks everyone!

    Haha, funny that you should ask because that was something I was seriously thinking about before the install. Hmmmm... should I add the 1/4" spacer on drivers side or not? Was driving me crazy for 2 days! At the last minute I realized that I was overthinking things and said phuk it! No spacer! Sure the drivers side may be a hair lower than passengers side......and when it comes to my truck I like things perfect, but it was too small of a difference to bother me.

    Nice setup. If I had it to do over again I would not have spent all the damn money I did on my truck and should have done the same thing you did.
