    If going with the Bilstein 5100s, for a basic 2.5" kit. You will need the Front 5100s, and a AAL of 1.5" for the rear. Rear 5100s are also recommended. There are other extras you can do, but the lift can be acheived with that basic setup.

    if you want to level it off or do about 2" lift that will lift the front. you will need blocks or add a leaf for the rear

    it wont provide enough lift to get much bigger tires, the only way to increase ground clearance is bigger tires. you will need 3+ " lift to fit 33's or bigger

    I'm running the 5100's at 2.5 up front with 2" lift shackles with 5100 shocks. The rear sits a little higher. I'm running 265 70 17's but could running a bigger tire. I would probably need to trim and all that fun stuff.

    Haha, you dont trust me do you!

    Yes, thats all you need. If you want 3 inches you have to purchase longer coils and set your front Billies at 0.

    with stock coils you need to set the shocks at 2.5
