    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Are you talking about adding a spacer to your 5100's?

    Yeah I have a set of ToyotaTec top spacers I could use instead of moving the ring to the top notch of the Billy 1500s. I'm wondering which will ride better.

    Top plate spacers are bad for your ball joints. Just set the billys to 2.5".

    Agreed with everyone don't stack lifts your ride will be so much better with the 5100s set to 2.5

    Most don't go with aftermarket UCA's at 2.5".

    Some have to to get their alignment in spec, but most don't.

    Hi all, anybody have any idea what is the biggest tire you can fit with the billy's set to 2.5? I have 285/70/17 terragrapplers on XD revolver rims. Currently I have the readytek spacer kit which I wish I had never put on, but you live and learn. So I want to take out the spacer and do the aal and billy's but want to know if the tires will fit without chopping the cab mount. I have already had to trim the fender flares due to some rubbing.

    Some have to chop the cab mount, some don't. It's hit or miss.
