    I've been looking at getting the 5100's, but I'm wavering on whether to just do the fronts of to get the rears as well. Anyone have any insight as to why I should or shouldn't get the rears as well?

    I would do all four corners.

    Billstein 5100's all around, ToyTec coilovers up front, ToyTec 1.5" AAL in the rear with TSB leaf springs, Light Racing Upper Control Arms, XD Revolvers in Black wrapped in 265/70/17 BFG TA/KOs, AFE Pro Dry S Airfilter, Pioneer AVIC-X920BT in-dash NAVI, Devil Horns by Andres, 14 inch shorty antenna
    I ran the fronts only for a couple of weeks and running my truck over bumps and such felt a little strange. The front felt and responded pretty differently than the back. I added the rear shocks to match the front and the ride really was much improved. Go with all four corners. You won't be disappointed.
