    Just looking for statistics on leveling with the 5100's and the rear TSB, or Tsb + a rear block
    I just want to get rid of the rake, maybe lift it alittle. I read as much as I could but saw many with no issues, many with the vibrations.. rather than re read a million posts I was hoping for a poll (just figured out how to do one)
    If you have issues or did and found the fix, please state your model, year, setup and what the issues and or fix was... again I know it's hit or miss, but just looking for statistics ... can't help it... I'm a numbers runner... thanks!

    What exactly do you have vibes in? and at what speed or when do you have them? bc I got some vibes at around 35-45mph.

    I just added the 5100's today. Set the front at .85". I got the TSB done 3-11-08 which only raised the rear approx. .75". Mine now measures from the ground through the center of the wheel to the bottom of the wheel well at 35.5" front and 37" rear. Slight rake look at 1.5" high in the rear which may settle some more. The 5100 set at .85" actually gave me exactly 1" of lift in the front. The ride is GREAT compared to the Toyota fleet HD Bilsteins. The ride is somewhat firmer but not harsh. I also needed another alignment after the 5100 install. I got on the loop after picking it up and really varied the speeds and didn't have any vibration or tracking issues.

    I have an 06 4x4 and just did the 5100's Wow what a difference! I set the front at 1.75 and had the TSB done. This is my perfect truck now. Looks great, drives beautiful and the wife looks hot driving it! Oh and no vibes.
