    Hey Guys. I’m getting the 5100 next week, and I all ready have the TSB. My question is what should I have the 5100 set at to have the truck level or just a bit ass high? I’m thinking 1.75" but I’m not sure. I searched but couldn’t find just what I wanted, so sorry for the repost in advance.

    5100's all around, fronts at 1.75". TSB leaf pack + Toytec TSB AAL
    I think that will give you pretty darn close to an even setup. I went with the TSB AAL in addition to the 5100s at 1.75 to keep a slight rake. I didn't want to put anything in the bed and have the rear sag lower than the front.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Put the front at 2.5. Mine is completely level with the TSB.

    You have any issues with vibrations or alignment at 2.5? I know some do, and some don't...I kept mine at 1.75 for that very reason.

    No vibes and goes down the road great (no wandering that I have noticed). I had the alignment done somewhere decent and it came in very well.

    That's good to know thanks. I think I will wait to switch mine when I get an AAL. Should be a nice little height bump. New tread would be nice as well...

    Another thought. . .I have the long box = longer drive shaft = less angle thus less drive line vibes? can anyone back that up? seems to make sense to me.

    Ok, just so that i have this right, with a stock truck (2006 AC 4x4) with the TSB if I put the 5100 on at 1.75" I will still have some rake. I want that any way because I cut wood and I dont want it to be ass low any time I have more than 200# in the back. I do plan on putting on some "Supersprings" soon and that will add a bit of lift to the rear, then I will bump up the 5100 to 2.5. Thanks in advance.
