    I ordered front 5100s on Thursday and they said they would get to me on Monday. The rear shocks depend on how much you lift it and how smooth of a ride you want.

    That's around 3" of rear lift, which would be the max recommended for the rear 5100. You'll be pretty close to topping then out. IIRC, You should look into the bilstein 5125s, I think those are the ones recommended for larger lift.

    That's sweet! I didn't know that. Thanks for the info, makes my own rear shock decision process a little easier. Much appreciated.
