    Just installed bilstein's 5100's on front of DC. I chose the 0.85 setting because I have not had the tsb done. I wanted the truck to have just a little rake and with the 0.85 setting the rear is just 1 inch high. The 0.85 setting gave me 1 full inch of lift in the front. I also installed BFG AT 265/75/16 and they ride great!! I will post pic's soon!

    I did the TSB and gained about 1 inch of lift in the back after settling
    So when i installed the 5100s up front, i went with .85
    This kept everything close to stock with 1 inch of lift
    the 265/75R16 Wrangler Duratracs gave it alittle more lift
    no rubbing, vibrations or any other issues

    Interested in seeing those pics. I will be upgrading my tires from the 245 to 265/75 16 as well. Was also thinking of the 5100's but the TSB is not in my future.
