    I have my front Bilstein 5100s ready to install but cannot decide what to set them at, 1.75 or 2.5. I don't think im going to get the TSB done or get an AAL so does anyone have a similar setup? Front Bilstein 5100s with a stock rear? I'd prefer the nose a little higher or level (cali lift) than lower. the rake really is bugging me. I've been searching the forum all night and really want to see some pics to help me with my decision. Access cabs are a bonus. Thanks in advance.

    thank you sir.

    oops, just fully read the title...he's looking for pics with stock rear springs with TSB. IIRC, the TSB raised my rear about 1" and has since settled about 1/2".

    go with the 1.75" setting(if you want to level). with stock springs it should be almost perfectly level. mine only has a very slight rake after the new rear springs.

    i just measured from the ground to my front fender and it's 34.75in and for the rear fender its 37.75. I really want to get rid of that rake so I think to get it level im going to go for 2.5. i think its looks better too so thanks for the pics

    This is at 1.75" with the rear TSB. You're going to have a greater likelihood of running into alignment trouble with the 2.5". Just my $0.02.

    Yea, hard to get the caster back on some trucks. I'd love to test a "good" alignment mechanic on multiple trucks to see if it really is just them, but it seems like its harder with some trucks than others. (huh huh... he said harder)
