    Bilstein 5100/5125 set at 2.5, 1" Toytec rear shackle
    Truck looks great man!!

    Is this photo after the shackle install? How do the 5125s work off road with the shackle in there? Are they topping out?

    I'm about to install this same setup this weekend and was told by DownSouth Motorsports that the 5125s they sell were only for stock height so I wanted to ask.

    Also, did you throw a diff drop in there?

    No differential drop, I hadn't read of a need for them after just a 1" shackle so I didn't get one. As far as topping out, no problems. I had thought about getting different shocks after installing them the shackles but decided to give it a trial for 2 weeks and so far it is just fine... sticking with them. I've taken it off to some rough off-roads (nothing major) and haven't had problems. :bananadance:

    Post some pics when your done....
