    Ok,

    I am about to order a set of Bilstein 5100 series shocks front and rear from Downsouth and noticed that they had two different options. One set includes 5100's all around, and the other set includes 5100's up front with 5125's for the rear. My plan is to run a Wheelers 1.5" ALL set up in the rear.

    Do I want the 5125's or the 5100 rear shocks with this 1.5" AAL set up?

    Thanks!!

    From the research that I've managed to pull up,

    the 5125's offer the adjustablity for taller lifts unlike the standard rear, non-adjustable 5100's.

    I'm just wondering out of the two which would be best suited for my specific application.
