    ^ I guess you can, but I wouldn't do it, might be too dangerous.

    Those shocks weren't meant to be used in conjunction with a spacer. If you want more lift, get another kit.

    X2! If your going to add a spacer to the 5100's youare esentially "stacking" lifts. You will have NO down travle and your trucks handling will be severilly affected.
