    I am looking at doing the 6112 up front with icon rxt leaf pack in the rear. I was planning on the 5160 like I see a lot of people use here

    the shop I got a quote says with the rxt pack you would use the 5125 Bilstein. I believe they said longer travel

    mis this correct info or do I stick with the 5160 as planned with the rxt pack?

    thanks

    I know the RXT leaf pack will flex 11" with match Icon Shock (Stage 4 I think). The Factory travel is 8ish" or so. I believe the 51005160 both have 8.9" of travel and should work with RXT but you would be giving up travel assuming 5125 has more (Not sure). Let us know how it goes. There are also others who may have better information of more knowledge on this topic.

    I ended up with 6112 up front with icon rxt rear leaf pack and the rcd bilstein b110 from headstrong

    rear seems fine. Wish I would have paid the extra and gotten the fox upgraded ones for the front. Nothing wrong about the 6112, but after changing stock suspension with 190k miles for the 6112 it isn’t night and day. Street driving just feels higher. Haven’t had a chance to go off road.

    Thanks. Any photos of your setup? I currently have a cheap rough country setup and need to replace with something that can support the camper and rack weight.

    Are you running spacers as well? My research on the rcd bilstein b110 is that they are for 4" lifts.

    I don’t have any pics on me right now. Headstrong and the place i went with for install recommended the longer travel shock for the rxt spring pack
