    So my 5100's and AAL arrived last night:
    First Thanks to Wheelers they were great with answering my questions. They seem like a good place to make purchases from.
    I had opened the boxes to check the parts and condition looks good no damage from shipping, I'm not a fan of UPS dropping things off and leaving it sit there. But, what can you do.

    Is the body of the 500's longer than the OEM shocks. They seem to be long. (just curious, didn't have a chance to look at the OEM shocks on my truck.
    On the AAL are or do all of them come with the entering whole offset from on end, what I mean is distance from the centering pin to the end measurements different. One side shorter then the other.
    Now the only other thing I have to get rear shocks to match going to look funny with 2 front silver shocks and 2 rear black shocks. Can't wait to have them installed.

    I will post some pics when done, and take some measurements I may measure top of fenders and look for a good spot on the frame also.

    I know I looked at the OEM's before may be just the appearance with the coils on them. Rear shocks will be a definite in the future.
