    I really don't think i want to spend the extra $$$$ on new UCAs, so I was considering 5100s up front set to 1.75, and a rear 1.5 AAL. My questions are, would this really even make a noticeable difference? Is this as high as i could get without spending the big bucks on new UCAs? What about the risks of getting vibes after the install? Could I fit 265s in there? 275s? If anyone could chime in with any knowledge or opinions it would be great!

    Mike :cool:

    Some members do run the 5100s at 2.5 without new UCAs and seem to be happy with it.

    A lot of people like the Billy 5100 lift... You can fit 265s stock, so ya, they'll fit. You'll notice the lift, although it is smaller than a 3ish" lift.

    FYI - you don't need aftermarket UCAs when you lift. New UCAs simply make the truck drive a bit better because your caster is back in spec. I drove 21k miles with stock UCAs and an OME 885 3" lift with no adverse wear on my tires.

    Vibes are a risk that you'll take by lifting.. I had small vibe, but got used to it... wasn't horrifically noticeable...
