    If you set the 5100's to 0 or 0.85 you will be alright with no rear lift. Any higher than that and youll have some bro lean with no rear lift.

    It depends. I had the 5100 set at 1.75 and I was level. Maybe half inch higher in the rear.

    Now I got 885s with my 5100 set at .85 and one inch rear block in rear and again I'm level.

    Best thing I could tell you is measure the front and rear then make your discision.

    If u are asking if it is required to lift the back if u lift the front then no.

    It is only for looks. Most people don't like the bro lean or rake by just lifting the front.

    Blocks are cheap. But I would stay away from them.

    Most people on a budget would go with an Add-a-leaf (AAL). They are around 80-100 bucks.
