    I am finally leveling my truck putting the 5100s on this weekend i am leaning toward the 1.75 and yes i have the rear tsb also after i do the install i have 275/55/20 nitto terra grapplers that will be put on my 20'' toyota tss rims. Is there anything els i need to go with the 5100s to install them and .85 setting or 1.75?

    Do not forget to have a alignment done . My bilsteins are set at 1.75 with the TSB and I had to add a 1 1/2 AAL to raise up the rear .:rolleyes:

    Getting the alignment when they put my tires on and my buddy has a spring compressor. so lynyrd you would recommend the .85 setting.

    That is correct, unless you want more lift .It is very easy to install the AAL. I had no issues with Vibrations or alignment .
