    We need some more info Stephen. yes you can order the shocks, but you won't have anything to lift the rear. What are your goals for the lift? Do you want to install them now?

    i just installed my 5100s this past weekend. your probably going to want to get an AAL for the rear. read the suspension thread for AAL install and front shock removal. it tells you all the tools you need and all the steps required.

    if you just want to upgrade the suspension and are leaving the 5100s at the 0 setting then you dont NEED the AAL, but since your title said lift i just assumed you were going to set the 5100s higher up. i think most people will say that 1.5" AAL + 5100s at 1.75" will get you level. however i installed mine at 2.5". im pretty sure that over 3" will require you to get new UCAs

    im pretty sure that the 5100s are longer in the rear than the stock bilsteins. and since your raising the back it could help. im pretty sure you can keep the stock bilsteins in the back but you should probably just go ahead and do them all. it gives a better ride and at least everything will be the same.

    Just ge the 5100 for rear they dampen the ride a lot better and stick better also. Since your doing an aal you might want to consider getting shims while your there at the rear leafs to help out with preventing vibrations. What are you doing height wise in front? Over 2.5" you might start to feel the need for new uca's and what springs are you using? The stock ones hopefully cause if your going to run eibach springs or ome or anything just use those as the lift without using the shocks at anything other than 0 or maybe .85" or whatever the first setting is
