    OME 884 Coils. GeneralSpringKC 90-297HD Leafs. Bilstein 5100's all around, front set at 0. Toytec 1/4" top plate on driver's side. Leer 100XR Camper Shell. OEM Bed Mat.
    Looking to swap my 5100s out back for an upgraded shock that will allow me more travel. I have an uncommon choice of the GeneralSpringKC hd leafs that gave me about 2.5" of lift over stock.

    The 5125s are supposed to be for a 2-3.5" lift which is where I fall but would there be any advantage in going for the b110's? They provide more travel but are suggested only for 4-6" lifts. Would they be too long for my mild lift in the rear?

    for the 5125s you need a shock tower relocation, and I think the b110s are for people that do the 4-6" drop bracket lift..
    you could technically fit anything in the rear as long as you're ok with chopping stuff off and welding things to make it fit, i.e, shock towers, bed cages, ex..

    These would work perfectly for you. They will give you more travel than the standard 5100 without needing to upgrade to longer brake lines. The B110 would require new rear brake lines to utilize maximum travel.

    Bilstein 5125 part number 33-230337. 9.4" travel - 24.40" ext, 15.00" comp. Too bad you are not in Phoenix, I have a set for sale with only 3,800 miles on them.

    I did the extended travel 5100’s for the rear and have great travel!
