    I'm thinking about doing the 5100's on the front (1.75) and rear to help level it out. I was planning on using the stock springs, but I'm nervous to do that after seeing a lot of people going with aftermarket ones.

    yeah they will work ok with the stock springs is what i've been told at the 1.75" setting but you will get a better ride if you buy lift springs which are a little longer than stock and set the billy's at 0"...either way will work
