    Depends on how much your rear leafs have sagged over the years but 1.75 is the closest to level you will get.

    They seem good the back sits up high. I just kept seeing people saying to set them at .85 and 1.75 so I wasn't sure which one

    you can squeeze your springs and max out the shocks but it'll make your ride shitty like mine :turtleride:

    I would get some front springs too if you can...
    I'm going to change it all when I can...

    Well measure your front height and rear height and see what the difference is, that'll give you a better idea.

    The springs and Dakar leaf pack are coming next just in the mean time I wanted to sit level while I wait for extra cash! So at 1.75 my ride will feel poor or ok?

    I have the SR5 too, the springs are thinner and made for a more on road ride. i used to have mine a 1.75 and it was ok.. still if you can shoot for better springs with that set up... I promise you wont regret it...

    if you still want a quality ride i would try to keep the shock as low possible with the 5100's and stock springs... when i first got mine in it was .85 it was ok but just gets worse as you go higher... now i have 285's and it clears them with some magic
