    Ok guys,

    I just finished putting on my front 5100s today. Set them at 1.75 and now even with the rear TSB I am sitting approx. 1 1/8" higher in the front than the back. was looking to be a bit more close to level so now I gotta get an AAL. My question is this. I can go with a 1.5" AAL and probably sit even. would getting the 2" make it alot of rake? I would like to tow or haul every now and then and now stare at the sky. What do you think?

    a 2 inch aal should be fine...cause it will settle after a little bit.

    that's what I am leaning toward. I just wanted some experienced advice. Rather do it once and be done!

    Is there any concern of DS vibration abnormal wear, or just awkward angle with the TSB + 2"AAL?

    no........thats just some vibrations from the angle of the drive shaft. axle wrap is where the axle actually kinda rolls forward or backward a bit and you get a clunk from it sliding near the rear diff.

    your comparison is awesome tho!!:D

    So.. no need for shims..? Thinking about it they work the same as shims but lower DS for straighter angle... right?

    My truck still has a rake with the 5100's @ 1.75 and the TSB. Back is about 1 inch highber. Are you sure the coil seats aren't installed upside down on the billys? It's a common mistake.
