    Hi guys - I currently have the revtek 3" spacer up front and 1.25 blocks in back. I know that I need to do TC UCA's to correct camber, but I was wondering if anyone has used the 5100's in conjunction with spacer to get more than the 2.5 that they advertise. I am topping out with the current setup and need more down travel. Also - anyone do any towing with the Alcan leaf pack? The ad says that you will lose payload but it does not say how much. Does this ride alot better than an AAL?
    Thank you for the help.

    Take this for what it's worth....

    Years ago when I was dealing with a lot of 1st gen truck lifts & such....

    There were guys who'd buy lift coils and put spacers in with them.
    The amount of pressure on that coilover and the coil assembly is astronomical.

    What ended up happening - is they'd bust out their shocks at the bottom.
    Since - the coilover shock is the only thing technically supporting all that pressure. So - with 5100's and a 1" spacer with stock coils? It would depend on how high you're gonna set those 5100's too? And do you take that chance of damaging the 5100's?
