    If I go Bilstein 5100 Shocks in the front and rear am I going to need anything else., I am already running 265.75/16 on stock height now. Or shoudl I just go with a full 3 inch pro comp suspension lift? The onyl thing is that I heard If I got 3 inchs or hghter I am goning to need a UCA (I think) Can someone please help me on this. I am not going to change the rims and tires out since I just got them. I was just going to get the Bilstein 5100 Shocks right now and bump it up to 1.75 just to give it a little bump up

    Soon....
    IMHO, if you do the 1.5" AAL I'd set them at 1.75 (3rd notch). I had them at 2.5 with that and it was level, but if I had to do it again I would do 1.75 to have the factory rake and it wont look goofy when the rear end is squatted down when towing or hauling heavy stuff.
