    the dealership called and informed me that my rear spring tsb parts arrived and wanted to schedule an install... my 5100's and eibachs also arrived today, so my question is should i install the front lift before taking it to the dealership for the tsb??... i'm pretty sure they will align the truck after the tsb is installed, but dont know what to expect from them when they see ive lifted the front of the truck myself.... i know they normally charge $130 for the alignment alone.. if they want to charge me, i would rather take it to a firestone and get the lifetime alignment for $179... what do guys think?

    I installed mine just before I got the tsb, to get the free alignment. They didn't care...the tech actually asked me where he could buy some billys.

    TSB was free. The front 510'0's were $182 from DSM.

    Like KPT said.... install the front lift FIRST and the dealership should do an allignment after the springs are installed.

    Just hope that your dealer won't have a problem with that.
