    My bad, I'm stuck on 5100's. 5100's work with up to 2'' of lift in the rear, so they should work, otherwise just call DSM and they will recommend what to get and give you a TW discount too.

    i would guess the one thats 8.60 travel in 255/70 with a ro comp adapter which adds 1.25" (BE5-6253-H5)

    i need one for a 2.75" lift so im guessing i need the 9.24 travel in 255/70 with procomp 1.25 adapter

    lots of guessing going on. still pissed about these new 5100's that aren't long enough.

    CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG, DAMN YOU

    well i first spoke to him and he sugg. the 5125 bc of the 5100 being back ordered and when i called, i got to spoke to sonny and he said they will be fine. i didnt think there when diff types but i did ask if they were comparable to the 5100 and would would i be able to set to a 3 inch lift and he did say yes to the lift question and they where not comparable to the 5100 bc they are vehicle specific while the 5125 are more racing. ill send him an email tom and find out which ones he ordered for me
