    Hey guys I know it's been posted a bunch in a bunch of places, but I want to get your opinion on my situation. I just got 5100s installed all around and at the same time swapped out my non tsb leafs for some 2008 tsb leafs, on my 2006 dc.

    I thought setting the fronts at 1.75" would level it out with the rear tsb but it still sits about an inch and a half higher in the rear... Will this settle or should I consider bumping the fronts up to 2.5"???

    Hard to know how much they have or have not already settled

    My truck came with the " TSB " 4 leaf pack stock , I lost 1 1/2 - 2" of height over 6 months of hauling about 300lbs daily
