    Hey guys, just as a disclaimer, I DID try and search and read about this before I posted, but...

    I'm looking at a set of 5100's all around to try and level out the front of my '09 DCab 4x4. This is the only lift I'd consider because I drive about 25,000 miles a year on the highways and this is basically for asthetics alone. I do a good amount of camping, but the roads and trails I'm on could be more than handled by the stock suspension.

    Am I right in thinking that the 5100's set at 1.75" in the front (and probably a set in the rear, but I know no lift there) will NOT require me to mess with UCAs or worry about much increased wear on other suspension components? Also, would this require me to run spacers on the front wheels, or is the lift not severe enough to need that? I can't risk worrying about too much increased suspension wear because I do drive so much, but I'd love to add a little lift to the front of the truck.

    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the info. Are the wheel spacers a non-issue with the 5100s at 1.75"?

    check the gap between your tire and uca. if it rubs then you will need spacers.

    Not an issue,Correct.:thumbsup:
    Only if you're going to use a wider tire on stock rims would you consider using a wheel spacer.

    Did you need to get an alignment done with that set-up?
