When I sent info. requests they were answered promptly. I'd recommend these guys to anyone. Now I just have to make it till tomorrow. Oh, well it'll help me develop some more patience. Thanks again guys. You've got my business from now on and I'll make sure to send other people your way. :woot::thumbsup:

    Sad that we have to thank people for doing what is basically required by every business....that said, the customer service experience was the same for me!

    I give credit where it's due. We always hear about the bad experiences and never the good ones. So when I get the chance I make sure to thank anyone who has done a good job.

    DSM is the best! Marco and Sonny really want the customers to feel appreciated. I've stopped by there to chat with them many times!

    I put the rears on this evening. Going to get up bright and early tomorrow and go over to my buddy's shop. Hopefully he'll let me borrow a lift, if not then back to the house to do it the traditional way. Can't wait, I love getting my hands dirty.

    oddly enough I got mine today too, and I too will be borrowing a lift at a friend's shop to get the fronts in.

    Got the front 5100's installed. Truck looks a whole lot better. Went with the .85 and couldn't be happier. The stink bug is gone and she sits pretty much level. Should level a little more as the TSB springs settle. I got the front end lined up with no problems. Took about 3.5 hours total time. We weren't able to use a lift so that slowed us down a bit. Luckily we were able to use the spring compresser stand. Make sure you drop the sway bar it makes it a lot easier.

    I highly recommend getting a partner to help you. If my dad hadn't been able to help I would have had to take it to a shop. Putting the fronts back required a pry bar, a rubber mallet and a lot of elbow grease. Had fun doing it though been awhile since I've been able to do hands on automotive work.

    Ride is much better also. Went on a pretty rutty trail and it doesn't try to yank the steering wheel out of my hands anymore. It's a whole lot smoother both on and off road. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants to level the front and get a better quality ride. Thanks again to DSM and to TW for the wealth of information on here. :woot:
