    Ok, i have an 08' dc i just bought a 2 inch toytech AAL...now I'm looking into options for the front end. I can get a pair of 5100's for $175 shipped and was wondering if that will be all i need. If i get the 5100's and set it for 2.5inch, will it be the right height with my rear's 2 inch AAL? what do u guys reccomend? any of you have this setup w/ pics?..please post...thanks alot ! !

    I love my setup at 1.75". Ride is nice, easy to get aligned, and I like the look. I'm sporting a 2" procomp AAL in the ass end. I'd definitely recommend the 5100s for less than 3" of lift.[​IMG]

    STOCK 4 NOW
    setting the bilsteins at 2.5 with a 2" aal, you will sit a little more level than stock, but still with some rake. if you have a topper like cheehab, then 1.75 and a 2" aal may be the way to go since the topper is going to settle the rear end down some

    TRD cold air intake, Bilstein 5100's @ 2.5, Toytec 1.5" aal w/rear bilsteins. MBRP tip, Flowmaster Delta Flow 50 series, Toytec axle shims and carrier bearing drop.
    Just a little bit of info i have billy's at 2.5 and toytec 2"aal. And i got a vibe in my driveline now. so you may want to also purchase and install the carrier bearing drop and or maybe axle shims.
