    Im hearing different things.

    I wanna level my prerunner. I have read that the 1.75 setting will level it.

    Do i need to buy anything other than the front shocks, or will just buying the shocks and setting them to 1.75 work fine?

    Also, i have been told i will need a spring compressor for the install, where can i get a spring compressor or should i just take it to a shop for the install.

    Newbie here.

    On the spring compresser note you can usually go to pep boys make a $ deposite and when you return it you get your $ back.

    And you can run 5100's with stock springs.

    As long as your leafs aren't flat , the 1.75 setting will leave you level , if your leafs are worn out go .85 or get an AAL and go 1.75
