    If you plan on using 5100's up front, then you don't need that Amazon lift. Just get the 5100's and set them to the setting you want for lift. Then buy some 1"-1.5" blocks from toytec for the rear. You'll save yourself money and get a better quality setup.

    Are you gonna adjust the bilsteins for some added lift, then add a spacer? I wouldn't recommend doing that. If you want to lift then use the 5100s for their adjustability. You have a choice of 0" lift (stock ride height), .85" lift, 1.75" lift, and 2.5" lift. You can Cain the lift by adjusting the C clip on the bilsteins to obtain your desired lift height. For the rear you can add a leaf, get a new set of leaf springs, or the cheapest way would be blocks.

    I was planning to use the blocks and U Bolts for the rear only. I can't find a AAL Or 1" blocks on Amazon. I choose amazon because I have a few hundred dollars credit to use from them.

    Also when I do the 5100's at 1.75 will it level out without a 1' block? My leaf pack now has the 3+1 overload. I have been reading all in the forums but just want to make sure before I pull trigger

    If you have a 1 1/2 in rake not, 1.75 will put you slightly higher in the front. If it is 1.75, that will get you level. Do some measuring and see if you want to be set at .85 or 1.75. If you are looking at leveling only, I would level w/ the 5100s and not use blocks. There is a reason blocks and spacers are the cheapest way to lift your truck.
