    I had my 5100's installed at 1.75" I was exactly 1.75" higher than stock. Last week I took them off and had them moved to 2.5". When I measured this time it went up 2.75" or maybe even a tad more. I am wondering if this is normal or not. I really wasn't expecting to get the full 2.5. I have a '11DC OR and am wondering if the progressive rate springs had anything to do with it. I measured my front from the ground to fender and it is 37 1/8" (I have 265/75/16).

    Did you give it time to settle? Drive it around a bit and put it through it's paces. I know my lift took 3-4 days to settle correctly. Also, best way to measure lift is from hub to wheel well...
