    I just got my truck back from having TSB done on rear suspension. As part of the TSB they upgraded the shocks. I was going to install 5100's when I lift the truck 2.5 - 3 inches but now I'm wondering if I just go with a spacer lift and forgo the 5100's.

    I use the truck off road but only as part of other activities I'm into.

    The "upgrade" shocks they gave you are still lower quality than the 5100s....So I would get the 5100's anyways.
