    I am ready to install my rear 5100's but my question is, do I need to wait until my rear leaf spring to settle before I install my shocks? I just had my TSB for one day and gained about one inch. Please advice! Thanks in advance!

    I had the dealer install mine for free when they did the TSB.. They had to remove the shock anyways

    Can you tell the difference from having a stock shocks compare to the 5100's?

    Hard to say, considering I had the TSB and shocks done together.. It now feels stiffer in a good way..... (thats what she said:D)
