    I know there is probably a million threads on this, but maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I want to add a front lift to my truck, I have a double cab 2011 TX pro 4wd. I have blocks leftover from my Revtek spacer lift from my old truck, i dont want spacers on the front cause they suck. If i read it right, i can use 5100s with stock springs and achieve a mild lift correct? because that would be very cheap for me to lift my truck. Plus, downsouth motorsports gives discounts to TW memebers? Any help would be appreciated and and yelling at me for not finding it in the search function is to be expected. sorry.

    Thanks alot TW, Josh

    The 5100's can preload the front springs to give you lift. Much like a preload spacer, but valved accordinly, giving a better ride.

    Sounds like that will work fine. You will probably need some minor trimming. Just some plastic and maybe a tiny piece of your bumper on the inside corner. Your gonna love it!!

    I have stock rear shocks with a 5th leaf (tsb + 1.5 AAL) and they are fine.

    I am not sure, but are you saying youre using a spacer lift and the 5100s? I heard someone say that its not a good idea to sure a spacer lift and a billy lift at the same time. Lemme go see what i read.




    did you get a +1 for that wealth of knowledge or just come to complain about an over tread topic title :p ...pow pow !! bang bang !!!
