    As MTgirl said, use the same front springs/hardware.

    For the rear, I got the 5100's, and also a 1" shackle. you should be fine with the 1 1/4". If you want a stock rear height, get the 5125 rear shocks. The guys at DSM will help you out with that. You still get the kit, it's just a different part # if you want the 5125's for the rear.

    With my 1" rear shackle, and the 5100's set in the middle setting, it's almost perfectly level. ('04 double cab)
