    someone help me out here...

    I know I need to replace my rear shocks. Is there a different route I should go?

    There are a bunch of reasons why you should not add spacers to the 5100s. Instead of the shackles, I would go with a Add-A-Leaf kit.

    How high are you trying to go and what do you want to do with your truck.?

    Only about 2.5-3 inches. I need new shocks in the rear for sure, maybe front too. Just looking for a cheap all around lift. I also thought about this kit:

    OR:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...0121462824&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    What are thoughts on those kits?

    another though....what if I was to add some 3" lift springs on the front. Would I have to replace the factory shock up front?

    I have to agree. Effective and cost effective. No real downsides, do it once and do it right. :thumbsup:

    OK so lets say I get the 5100's all around and do the low arch aal. If I decide to go a little higher can I add spacers on the front and shackles on the back and be ok?
