    I want to level my truck and I need suggestions and advice on how to do it right. I am going to have new wheels and tires installed this week (265/70/17 on Procomp 7089). Don't really want to lift my truck since this is a daily driver. I want to level it with 5100's on 1.75 inch without having the TSB done on the rear. Or should I set up my 5100's on 2.5 inches and get the TSB? I don't really haul anything or put anything heavy in my bed. I like how it rides now, no issues but don't like how the front is lower than the rear. Also, I don't want to lift it up to 3" because I am afraid my 265 tires would look too small. Please post some pics and examples! Thanks!

    just get the billys and set at 1.75 or get the eibach coils. either way it should level it out and look nice

    If u don't haul anything heavy then u don't need the tsb springs. I didn't get them. If you set the bill.'s at 1.75 u may look nose high? Maybe try the .85 setting first. Typically our trucks only have about an inch of rake.

    I measured the rear compare to the front and it is actually about 1.75" higher. So, I think 1.75" lift should level it out. But it won't hurt to try it on the .85" to see how looks. Thanks!

    But remember that the rear fender flare is cut about one inch higher than the front! so you actually have .75 inches of rake! ;-)

    Absolutely right, I forgot about that. Thanks again! I will try the .85" first then.

    The higher you go with the billy's the more stiff it becomes. I think u will be happier with the .85 setting!

    Nice looking car and with a perfect view. I miss those coconut trees. Can you tell me which I eibach spring do you have, so that I can buy it along with the 5100's. Thanks!
