    Putting my TSB springs on tomorrow and getting tires this week so just looking for pictures of truck that have the TSB, 5100's set at 1.75 and 265/70/17's. I am going from 265/65's to 70's with the tsb. Think that will be a good pairing? Thanks for the input

    Same, I'm hoping to get rear TSB done soon, and after I wanted to get Billy 5100's for front, what setting will make the truck level, and will there be vibes or anything? And the Bilstein 5100 up front is all I need right? Just swap it for the stock Bilstein?

    i posted my truck with the .85 setting and i have a feeling you wont get many more pics here, there are dozens of threads exactly like this, you just have to search.

    if you get the rear TSB done and want to add 5100s up front you can
    1- set at 0 and the ass end will stick way up
    2- set at .85 and the truck will look like it does stock, same rake
    3- set at 1.75 and it will look level, but if you put any weight in back or tow, it will be nose high
    4- set at 2.5 and you will need some more lift in back to get it anywhere near level

    no matter what setting you choose, you will not be able to stuff huge tires on your truck. 265/70/17 or 265/75/16 MAX, nothing bigger will fit unless you get spacers, more lift, cut away parts inside the wheel well up front.

    again this has been posted dozens of times here,

    Thanks for the info. There isn't like a 1 setting for the Billy? It jumps from .85 to 1.75 with nothing in the middle of it? And you can literally just swap stock TRD bilstein for billy 5100 up front right?

    those are the settings 0, .85, 1.75 and 2.5"

    you choose what you want to set it at and replace your old shock with the 5100

    height can not be changed without disassembling the coil
