    Rear 5100's will not lift your truck. You will need an add a leaf or different spring pack to get any lift in the rear.

    I dont know a whole lot about it but check out DownSouth Motorsports, Wheelers Offroad, Toytec, etc. Do some searching on here and you should find all kinds of info. I know from experience that DownSouth Motorsports kicks ass. Give them a call and talk to Marco and he will give you plenty of options and set you up with exactly what you need. They have really good prices also. They are a vendor on here.

    If you get the Bilsteins you can set them at .85", 1.5", 2.5". If you order them from toytec you can click on add a leaf to the rear when you order the shocks and get whatever size lift you want for the rear. I believe it is like $79 for the leaf.
