    Nice. Close to level.
    So close to 2" of lift at the 3rd notch, if I am reading that correctly?

    Don't mean to hijack this 6112 thread, but I am seeing that many of you are pairing it with the 5160s.
    Does anyone have a valve rate number for the (new)5160s?
    Thanks.

    Hey Funk

    I can't find anything bout value rate. I can tell you they are driver/ passanger side specific. Sorry couldn't help more.

    Thanks for checking Chad. I think it may be a direct call to Bilstein to find out.
    Appreciate your help.

    I have had mine on for 10K miles on my gen3 offroad. Mine are set on third notch. Paired with 5100s and wheelers 3 leaf progressive aal (overload removed). Running cooper st maxx 255/85/16. I installed the first week I bought the truck. This setup gave me about 1.75" lift on front and 1.5" rear. Still had .75" rake. Both have settled over the 10K miles. I am now getting some rubbing, especially on drivers side while turning on incline/decline. Going to go up to 4th notch this week and see if that helps.

    Great looking truck.
    How is the 6112/5100 pairing?

    Love it. Did about 20 consecutive miles on a washboard Forest Service road yesterday. Even my wife noticed how well it rode. Quick recovery time on the 6112s.

    Are you saying the 6112s or 5160s are side specific? I didn't see anything that mentioned that when I installed mine

    You say it settled from 1.75"? What are the current measurements as I'm considering the same and looking for about 1.5"

    image.jpg image.jpg My 6112's were installed on the first setting with 1/4" drivers side spacer back in December and I'm at 22" from center of hub to bottom of fender on both sides on my pre runner V6 Access Cab. The truck is sitting about dead level. also replaced rear shocks with fox 2.0 replacement shocks. I'm very happy with the ride.

    Edit: The 6112's settled a 1/2". The final Result is 1-1/2 of lift on the first setting.

    Well that's really interesting. I wonder if there is a way to tell them apart. I'm gonna have to go look today.

    Yeah, check them. Hopefully you won't have to swap them.
