    I'm about to adjust my front 5100s to 2.5" and add a broken in (15k miles) toytec 2"AAL in the rear. I'm a little concerned with rear shock travel and ruining my new shocks. Marco at Down south said I'd be pushin it. Is anyone else running this setup? And if so have you had any proba with tge rear shocks? How is the stance of the truck? I don't mind a slight rake but would like it fairly level.

    His answer was that the 5100s are only .4" longer than the stock shocks, and that id run the risk of the blowout.

    I'm mostly a Hwy driver and do some occasional light wheelin'

    Thanks. Pics would be awesome
