    I would like to know if there are different lengths or models in the 5100s. I take it the fronts are adjustable and the rears are not. BUT, i have seen people talking about extended travel 5100s? I am getting the 4" maxtrac spindles up front and aal in the rear i would like to do 5100s all around and adjustable so i can go up to 6" lift in the future. Which shocks do i get?

    Is this what i should get?

    Yes, they are 5125's which are sold by size (travel) and not application. Give DSMS a call. Sonny or Marco will tell you exactly what you need.
