    I just got my 5100's installed today on all fours (fronts @ 1.75"). I love the height of the truck now since it feels more like my old 2000 Tundra did with a stock suspension.

    I like that it still has a slight rake to it even with the shell since it's only been 3 weeks since the rear TSB was done.

    Thanks for all the compliments. The last thing I'm doing is adding some Avid Off Road sliders to it and I'm done modding for the foreseeable future.

    Thanks. I like them a lot better since I painted the wheel lip and hub and replaced the lug nuts with black Gorilla Acorn style ones.

    The guy at the shop where I had them installed questioned whether I really needed an alignment, especially since I just had one when my Toyota dealer performed my TSB 3 weeks ago.

    However, everything I’ve read about changing the height of your truck suggests you should get an alignment so I had it done anyway for peace of mind.

    I asked Sonny from DownSouth Motorsports to be put on the waiting list on 1/20 and was contacted on 1/28 that they were in. The 5100’s were shipped to me on 1/29 and I received them yesterday (2/2).
