    So I ordered B5100's all around and a 1.5 aal. I will be adjusting the front 2.5". Will I need a brake proportioning valve bracket kit?

    You should be able to bend the bracket to accomodate.

    Should I go ahead and buy the kit to be safe?

    Its up to you. The "Kit" is just a spacer that moves it down a bit. Some washers would do the same thing, and cost less.

    I had asked a question on another post but didnt get a reply, so I'll ask u. My truck sits pretty level right now and with 2.5" of lift in the front and 1.5" in the back will my rake be really noticeable? If so, what could i do with the aal to get a bit more rear height? Thanks for the quick replies Chris.

    I am kinda thinking I should have but the guys a DSM suggested the 1.5. I have a buddy who got the 3" toytec lift and it come with the 3" spacers and a 2" aal and it looks pretty good, rake is hardly noticeable. Mine will also be an inch different, I dk know, just worried about it bc I dont want it to look bad. This will be my first lifted truck.
