    I am wanting to purchase a set of Bilstein 5125s for the rear of my truck BUT have not been able to get a definitive answer on what length I should go with. The truck has 1.5 inches of lift via an AAL in the rear, soon to be replaced with AllPro 1.5 lift spring pack (soft ride springs).

    Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I searched the forum and have not found anyone specifically addressing this issue for the amount of lift in question. Also, if you have any recommendations of using a shock other then the 5125 for the AllPro 1.5 leaf pack, your comments will be much appreciate!!

    Buy them from toytec, they should be the correct application to fit with your AAL..

    If you call bilstein and tell them what you got in the rear they should be able to tell you what you need

    This is your best bet -- I wouldn't worry about the 1/2" difference between the AALs. I have the 2" AAL and run the 5125s, but many have the TSB AAL at 1.5" from Toytec and run the 5125.
