    Bilstein 5100 all around, Eibach 1.6" lift springs up front with 5100's set at .85 giving 2.5" lift, Fabtech AAL 1.5" lift in the back
    Just finished up installing my lift last night. Here's what I have:
    Front:
    Bilstein 5100's set at .85
    Eibach 1.6" lift springs
    Total lift 2 1/2"

    Rear:
    Bilstein 5100's
    Fabtech AAL
    Total lift 1 1/2"

    The AAL's took me about 4 1/2 hours to install. The driver side was a breeze after I went through the learning curve (and plenty of 'f-bombs') on the passenger side first.

    Here are before and after shots:

    Appreciate it everyone! Thanks to Chris4x4 for his write-up on doing the AAL yourself. And also tons of other research from posts on here before I ordered the parts. TW rocks!

    :cheers: Looks very nice!

    I'll button up my Eibach/5100 front setup this Saturday and see how much lift I get from the stock setting. Just got some 5100s on the way for the rear too.:bananadance:

    Nothing at the moment
    Have you gotten an alignment yet? I'm looking at the same setup at .85 through the group buy, but can't afford the LR UCA's. Are you in spec if you got your truck aligned?

    I am going hopefully tomorrow to get the ailgnment done. Keep your fingers crossed that they can get it done with my stock UCA's. My laptop took a poop this morning so I had to shell out for a new one today! Truck mod budget is now officially exhausted!

    They are 20" wheels with 275/55r20 tires.


    Thanks! The ride is a little more stiff than before but not bone jarring and I actually like it. I think the Eibach springs helped over just going with Bilstein 5100 from what I've read on here.

    Is your setup from the group buy? Did you get the UCAs?
