    I am going to purchase Bilstein 5100's but cannot find them on the internet, is there any place that any of you guys know that will have them? Also once I get them I will set them to 2.5 and want to know how big of a aal I will need to level out the back "a product link" would be helpfull. And lastly would a 32'' tire rub with a 2.5 lift? Pics would be greatly apreciated. Thanks

    I think you would need to lift the front 2.5" to keep it level with the 1.5" AAL

    I put a skyjacker 2.5-3 in lift on my 98 4x4 with yoko geolanders AT tires 32x12.50x15 and they fit. I just couldnt cut my wheels too hard or it would scrub the top wish bone, A arm, upper control arm, whatever you wanna call it. 1/2 wheel spacers, I was told would have taken care of the problem.

    If you are going to set the bilstein's at 2.5 you may wanna consider getting some UCA's for the truck. I just got mine installed and my truck wonders a little when driving on the freeway. Also, even thought my truck was aligned right after the install, it still pulls to the left a little.
