    Hey All, I talked to Dan @ Wheelers today and ordered the Alcans (group buy). I intended on getting the stock 4 leaf sets but after some consideration went for the 5's.
    I figured 1 1/2" really isn't all that much and being that I needed new shocks billy 5100's sounded good so what the heck I ordered them too. The front's are on back order so I'll have to be patient but I'm sure after reading all the posts here about how good this setup is I'll be happy. :D Can't wait. My wife keeps telling me that I'm a 18yr old locked in a 55 yr old body and guess what I think she's right.

    Very cool.
    I think Im going to go ahead and order the 881's and rear 5100's at the same time. Did he mention when the front 5100's might be available?

    No problem for me, I have to wait at least 2 months for our shop to be finished before I can even install anything.

    They are due for some updates anyways. Good job on the buy. Not only do you get a new stance but a better ride, valving and ect. Did you get rear shocks too?
