    got some 5100s for the front that im gunna run at 2.5 and a 1.5 aal for the rear. Heres the kicker, I want to replace my rear shocks as well to allow a little more travel. The guys at the local 4wp ended up getting into a huge debate about the correct bilstein to run. Some said rear 5100s some said 5125 etc... Any help would be appreciated. Any one have some knowledge bout this?

    You will need the 5125's in a longer shock than OEM length. ALso, you will need to lengthen the brake lines.
