    yes. those are pretty much the best bang for your buck, as far as struts go... but you can not combine your current lift and the lift available with the 5100s. you have to set the 5100s the the stock/ 0" lift setting

    if you think the front is sagging, then you need new springs too, otherwise you'll sit the same as you are now, but will have new shocks
