    Anyone here have any installation instructions for the 5100s for the rear? I took off my rear shock today to install the 5100s, but I am a noob at this, and I'm a bit confused. I kinda figured where most of the rubber pieces and such go but I want the be sure. One more thing, is there a certain way to intall the shock, cause I did notice it was like 3-4 inches longer then the mounts allow. Am I supposed to compress it or something to get it to fit?

    Yes, you need to compress it a bit. There is only one way for it to go into the truck. Shaft pointin up. :)
