    What is the difference between the 5100 and 5125 in the rear? I know that the 5125 is longer, but what benefit would it give me to put the 5125s in the back vs 5100. Im buying a new house, so the OME kit is out. Im at looking at 1.75 to 2.5 in the front (prob 1.75) and AAL in the back.

    The 5100's and 5125's are valved the same, but the 5125's require the use of an adapter to fit the stock top mount. Personally, the 5100's are good for up to 2" rear lift. Im running the 5100's in the rear and am quite happy.

    1 more question for you....1.75 or 2.5 in the front. I drive a TON to work and back. I dont want to risk any driveline vibrations. I might go the 285 route. Maybe a silly question, but what about a little bigger like 275? I alss have the dreaded bump on takeoff. Ive checked everything, and nothings loose.

    The higher you lift, the more firm your truck will ride. 285's will fit, but you will rub alot. Also, the higher you lift, the more Caster you loose, and may have some wandering when on the road. 275's would be a good size, but I think its kinda rare.

    Yea, I never really heard much about 275. Now to the other part. I have the dreaded bump on stop and takeoff. I have read alot about axl wrap etc. I have checked everything and nothings loose. Now what?

    If its the bump that happens on stopping AND starting, it may be the slip joint in your drive shaft..You need to take it apart, and put some grease in it.

    i didnt take pics, but basically,what you do........where the drive shaft goes into the rear diff..........you'll break the 4 bolts loose on the knuckle and take the shaft apart. then...you'll clean the area real good-i had to run some sandpaper around mine cause it was real rusty-, then you'll reinstall the shaft and grease it. you will need to put the truck in neutral....and do all this on a flat surface....so you can get the shaft to line back up.

    What Will said, and to add, A drive line shop would be the best bet, or If there are any members in your area that could lend a hand. :) Be sure the Drive shaft is lined up EXACTLY how it was when removed, or vibes may be present.
