    Yes, you did miss something. Changing the upper ball joints is a bitch.

    Is anyone in here running this setup?

    Bilstein 5100 Adjustables up front & Bilstein 5125's in back?

    If I am not mistaken the rear shocks you speak of have a longer travel then the 5100's but your not lifting 4-6" so they are completely uneccessary. Just get the 5100

    stock.....for now...
    with the right tools/method, and as long as they aren't too corroded its cake.

    It took me about an hour to do one side when I put on my all pro UCA's.

    Used a pickle fork to separate the UCA from the BJ, and some sockets and a big C-clamp to press out the ball joint.

    The ball joint shot out at me like a rocket, but nonetheless, fairly simple.

    I have Bilstien 5100's/Eibachs in the front now with an AAL/5100's in the back.

    Rears springs have had it and I'm thinking of going with OME Dakars and OME Nitro Sport shocks but keeping the 5100's/Eibachs up front. Anyone running this setup?

    I just got 5125's, hopefully throwing them on tomorrow. I needed another 2" of travel after adding longer shackles with my AAL.

    Are you saying that the 5100's are able to accomodate a rear lift?
    I was planning on either replacing my leafs or putting an AAL to help reshapy my old worn pack and provide enough lift to have the truck sit level after I lift the front about 2 - 2.5 in the front.

    5100s should be able to handle 0-2" of lift with no issues

    I also run 2" in the rear with 5100's

    Did you add new leaf packs or AAL? Some people have to set the billies on the 2nd notch (1st gens only have 3 notches). Not sure why but maybe that would help? I have mine set on stock ride height with the coil providing the 3" lift. My new leaf packs added exactly 2.25" to the rear. Before adding the new suspension I was stock everything and for whatever reason I was sitting very close to level. After the new susp. I'm sitting 1/4" higher in the front.

    i have eibach coils up front, so my shocks are on first setting, but i added the 2" aal to my stock leafs and it really re-arched them. cause i have a rake now.
