    Billies ordered
    Hello Forum,
    I ordered the 5100's yesterday and they are scheduled to arrive next week. I will have them installed once I get them and I will take pics. I currently have Timbrens, EZ990 #981 AAL, & BFG A/T's 265/75r16. The current height specs:


    l.f. 35.25 (thanks to ToyTec 1/4" spacer on top of l.f. strut)
    r.f. 35.25
    l.r. 37.75
    r.r. 37.50

    The Hellwig kit gave me 1.5"'s of lift and the u-bolts are tightened down to where they touch those rectangular leaf spring clamps. If it werent for those I would tighten the HELLWIGS down closer to the OEM leafs. I thought of taking them off since the u-bolts from the AAL will keep the springs straight. I have the original 2 spring + 1 overload set up.

    My question is:
    What would be the ideal setting for the Billies and still have some rake?
    .85 or 1.75?

    Thanks :)

    I also installed 1.5" AAL.

    However, without any spacers, I put the billies on the 2.5" settings. I have a little bit of rake. Here's a couple pics.

    Yes, it does. Thanks! And I love that movie. It was actually better than the 1st Pet Detective IMO!
