    Here are pics for those interested, of 5100's installed in the front only, at the
    1.75" lift height with NO rear mods at all. No TSB and NO AAL's. I have found very few pictures of this scenario so here you go.

    Looks good! Yours looks level with no TSB in the back. Mine had TSB done to level it with the front. I guess the weight of my fiber glass bed cover and stuffs matters.

    Hey Captain...handles great, very smooth yet firm. Definitely better than stock TRD bilsteins. Would highly recommend.

    I jacked up my truck before hand to see the different heights. The .85
    height was not cutting it and the 2.5 too high. 1.75 was ......just right.

    Looks good! I'm going to eventually get the 5100's for the front and AAl's in the back. Tuesday of this week I'm getting the TSB done...

    Here's my truck with the 5100 set 1.75 and TSB spring in the back. I gained only 1" in the back after TSB probably due to the ARE fiber glass bed cover.

    I'm a little new to the site but could some let me know who makes the 5100s and are they like coilovers? I'd like to level out my truck in the front and was thinking about just using spacers. Any input would be great. Thanks!

    You'll need to get alignment after.

    Cool. I have an ARE LSII on the back of my truck and I want to get the rear TSB and set Bilsteins to 1.75 but I wasn't sure if it would sit nose-high. Looks good!
