    5100's all around with the fronts set at 1.75" 1" readylift blocks in the back. antenna X shorty antenna. smittybilt step sides. MKW M19 satin black wheels 17x8.5 plasti dip'd front emblem and hood scoop.
    hey guys.
    so, i put my 5100's on a few days ago (1.75") and i love it so far, the truck is level, but it actually looks almost like the front sits nose high slightly, i don't think it does, maybe im just used to having the rake. anyway, i was thinking about maybe lifting the rear a tiny bit.
    can you get rear blocks that are less than 1"?
    or, what is the smallest leaf lift out there?
    how easy is it to throw in another leaf compared to a small block?
    i can't imagine it's hard either way.
    also, this may be a dumb question, but, would lifting the rear a bit change the front alignment at all since it changes the angle of the truck a bit?

    i measured and it's the same, but it just looks like it's nose high when i look at it.

    hi drive it for a while i dont know how many miles u have on it yet but mine settled some after 20000 k or so . was level right when i installed top spacer i as well thought it looked nose high so i put in 1 1/4 rear block.was just right but i now have a full 2" difference front to back and am considering removeing the block because this caused my rear shocks to top out on large speed bumps so drive it for a while let it settle see what happens.. looks good btw

    Looks level...

    But as soon as you put some weight in the back, I bet it won't. It's your truck and your money. I would look at an AAL. 1.5". By the time it settles it will look spot on.

    Just my .02 cents.
