    I just bought some bilstien 5100's front and back with 1/4 spacers and add a leaf for the back.

    I called a place about having them installed here and the guy told me he wont be able to get the allignment right with that sytem and that it would be a terrible ride.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you will find plenty of people who love that setup. That mechanic is just not familiar with lifts.

    It is gonna be stiffer than stock. If you put the front shocks to 2.5" of lift then you will need some new upper control arms in order to get a good alignment.

    ok so I do need UCA's... getting conflicting info. What about putting OME's for the lift and setting the bilsteins to 0?

    Trying to get this lifted without breaking the bank.

    what year is your truck. I know a bunch of first gens, including myself, with full 3'' of lift and stock control arms and the alignment is fine. caster isnt ideal but its close
