    Just got my 1.5" aal put on after gettting tired of looking at the -0.5" bro lean I had when I leveled @ 1.75. Looks much better now I think and now 1" high in back. I'm gunna go to the 2.5" setting and I think all said and done I should be at 0.25" higher in back. Anyone have pics of there truck with Bilstein 5100s @ 2.5" and 1.5" or 2" AAL?

    Don't have any pics for you, but I think yours looks good as it is now. It may be slightly higher in the back, but it's a truck - it's supposed to be. I think raising the front to 2.5 would make it look nose high again.

    Measurements would be great! Although you're running a different setup, i wonder how much lift your getting with eibach springs. 3"?

    I think you should be fine if you have the tsb. You can try to measure the front and back height from ground to bottom of fender midline and see how much higher your back is to your front then tack on 1.75" more to the front to see if you will be level. I had 5100s @ 1.75 and no tsb or aal and was only 0.5" less in rear. Put the 1.5" aal on now i'm 1" higher in rear. I figure if the math works with 5100s @ 2.5" I should be + 1/4" in rear. I may change out to 2" aal then though to carry more weight.

    Why do you "tag" threads so often? Just curious - same as subbing?
