    Ok so I recently installed some new wheels and tires with spacers, so the wheels wouldn't rub the calipers, now I am experiencing some slight body rub. Was going to eventually order some 5100s to level my truck out anyway so I went ahead and ordered them now, what would you suggest is the best setting on the stock coils. I would like to go 1.75 with them for maximum clearance but don't want my truck to be too high in the front as the rear is staying stock for now (my little wheel and tire project has ended up costing me a small fortune so far).

    I have searched a ton of this and got a lot of info but would just like some opinions and maybe some pics of trucks with stock rears and the 5100s in the front.

    Thanks

    stock.....for now...
    first notch above stock should level out the truck and help clear the tires.

    Probably a dumb question, but can they be adjusted while on the truck, or do you have to take apart the whole coil/shock in order to do so?

    Nope, they have to be apart.

    My truck with 5100s on all 4 corners, fronts set at 1.75", no TSB or AAL in the rear, and 265/65/17 General Grabber AT2s on XD Addicts. I had a tiny bit of fender rub when turning in reverse, but I just grabbed a hack saw and trimmed off the plastic piece at the front of the wheel wells.

    Thanks for the pick, yeah I was rubbing a ton on the fenders, trimmed them back, still needs more though. Big concern on the rubbing on the frame which is why I picked up the 5100s for the front.
