    I have Bili 5100's in front set at 2.5" and all stock in the rear. Occasionally, on the road my truck bottoms out in the rear. I figure it's from the lift in front tilting it back a bit. I'm thinking about getting the 5125's and some AAL's to stiffen up the rear. Does anyone have this problem or experience with the AAL's and 5125's with a 2.5" lift in front?

    You should be golden with the aal and shocks. I was bottoming out a lot when I was running my stock rear.

    Lots.
    I'm interested in this as well. I'm not sure what the difference is between the 5100 rears and the 5125 rears. If someone would enlighten me it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    You will love the aal, but honestly the 5125 are pretty much the same as the 5100s just they come in custom lengths. The 5100s or 5125s will not even be noticeably different from your stockers, I know money is kinda tight for everyone but if you can get the Bilstien 7100s they are rebuildable and revalvable, also they make them in a resivores so if you do hard off roading you won't need to worry about overheating the shocks.
