    Hey guys i have a 08 4wd 6 lug and i have been planing on doing a 3 in lift with the 5100 adjustable shocks in the front and thinking a 2 in block in the rear would make it have a factory stance just 3 inches taller...and i want to replace all 4 shocks.is there a special length of shock or something i need in the rear with a lifting block?

    get an AAL rather than a block

    and give Downsouth motorsports a call for shock lengths, they sell a rear 5100 made specially for lifts

    We have a Single Leaf style that does stiffen up the pack some if you need extra load support. And we have a 3 Leaf style that make your stock pack function/ride smoother. The bilstein 5100s for the rear will work great.

    How does 3" in front & 2" in rear keep the factory stance?
    Get an AAL or new leaf pack for the rear.

    I didnt think you got a full 3 inches out of the 5100 in the front?is it really nessary for me to have an aal instead of the lift block for the street only?
