    Just measure the difference between front and rear and go from there. You should be ok in the 1.5 range to level it out. Any higher setting then you may need a slight rear lift and your ride may suffer.

    add a leaf

    also consider 5125's for the rear as the 5100's are 22.50" extended which is the same as stock. it would help your downtravel.

    Mine are set at 2.5 and also have a 1.5" aal for the rear. Sometimes it looks like there's a sag in the ass end but it measures close to level from the ground to the fenders. I do have a long bed which could be why it looks like there's a sag!

    it depends...i have a reg cab and the rear end doesn't require a tsb....it's already alot higher than the front...so i got 5100s and set them at 0" with OME 883 lifting springs which raised the front about 1 1/2"....the rear is still about 1" higher than the front without any modifications

    i just oredered the 5100's all around for mine and next weekend i will be installing them. when i measure the difference between the front and rear i have a 2.25" rake to the front what i did was took a floor jack and jacked the front up 1.75" and it still maintained a .25" higher in the rear so i will b setting them to 1.75 maybe this will help. i also do not have tsb done
