    I love my wheelers 3 leaf, but I decided to go with different shocks.

    I got my order from Wheelers last week - Alcan 3 Leaf pack with the 5100's. I've been reading the threads for both Shocks and Leafs, and cant wait to do install.

    What did you set your Fronts at? I'm figuring 2.5" to match the back 1.5".

    EDIT - also got Johnny at Wheelers to email the Leaf install instructions, since they weren't included. I would buy from them again... especially when its time for the UCA's.

    I still haven't got mine yet but the plan is to set the front at 2.5. I don't have the tools to do it myself so that kind of sucks, I was trying to see if anyone on here would help but noone seems overly interested - I even offered to pay them and buy beer lol. I'm just hoping the front is not higher than the back..

    Forgot to post again. Got everything installed last weekend:

    I ended up getting 1" of lift out of the 3 pack. No overload. I set the coilovers at exactly 2" from stock, and I ended up with a good stance... Rides pretty good, but these dampers are typical ICON and feel stiff in town. Still have to hit some trail. ;)

    yea i cant decide whether the 5100s set at 2.5 with the wheelers 1.5 " 3 leaf AAL is level.. sometimes it looks like it has some rake, and other times it looks like the front is higher than the back.. idk. ill post up a pic and you guys can decide.

    Would have liked to get OME actually but was honest with myself, I live in Flatland snow country and just needed some more clearance for snow/mud
