    I've been down this road. Return the rear shocks, they will hold you back. They are no longer than stock. Since you're going with 1.5" in the rear, you want the bilstein 5125 with 8.6" travel, 22.5" extended (BE5-6253-H5). And a procomp eye-to-stem adapter which adds another 1.5" and mount the shocks boots down.

    This is mine, with 9.24" travel. I have a little more lift in the rear.

    not with 1.5" of lift.

    2.5" would be a very good idea.

    nice! Would that add lift to an existing AAL? I like that setup quite a bit.

    Thanks. No the shocks will not provide any lift. The 5100's he got for the front however, will.

    I don't see the part on the ProComp Site. If I call them will they know what I am talking about?


    I think I will consider the 5125's when I get a full leaf pack like Deavers or Alcans.

    Heres the adapter.

    http://anyoffroadparts.com/i-4118819-pro-comp-690001-loop-to-stem-adapter.html

    I was sold when the mechanic was changing out my traval limiting 5100's and installing my new 5125's. One side was completed, one was not. The extra travel was extremely noticable (entire axle was cocked bigtime). I paid $158 for my 5100's, then $179 for the 5125's. Got the correct stuff from downsouth motorsports.
