    Just like everyone here, I've spent countless hours reviewing/searching 5100 threads for before and after measurments and photos. I'll be installing Billies @ 2.5 on all 4 corners and a set of Ride Rite air bags in the rear this weekend.

    If anyone has any questions or wants before and after measurements/ pictures let me know. I wont know the ride quality till the work is done.

    PS. My truck specs:

    2009 TRD Double cab Sport 4x4, non-tsb in the rear.

    Shocks don't lift the rear. Leaf springs are in back- not coils.

    You can't adjust the rear 5100s.... Leaf springs changes the height of your truck in the rear.
