    My 5100s came in today and I need to know if I need to set at 1.75 or 2.5 to level. I got a 2011 dc trd offroad 4x4 with rear tsb complete and I'm installing the billys in the a.m. so any quick advice would be great!!!

    I'm not sure what is necessary if you have the TSB. I had mine set at 1.75 for leveling with stock springs though.

    I thought I read that you would need aftermarket UCAs if you go to 2.5 as it wouldn't align without? :confused: But also for some it does? I know they are must to go to a 3" lift.

    I too have the rear TSB and when I measured, I think I'd need the whole 2.5...

    Most people experience the most level stance at 1.75 with the rear tsb performed.

    No tsb? 0.85" to level. Tsb? 1.75

    It's really hit or miss at 2.5". Some get ucas, some don't.

    Same, except DCSB. I didn't even like how they rode at 1.75, couldn't imagine 2.5. Ha.

    I've got mine set at 1.75, but I've also got an extra 1.5 AAL in the rear. My truck has a forward rake to it but it's barely noticable, at least to me. 1.75 should level you out with everything else stock.
