    Alright, well I have my (4) 5100s here and I am just trying to plan out what I want to do suspension wise.


    Put them on at 2.5 and for get about it. Or 2.5 in the front, and .75 in the rear with AAL? Also should I keep my stock springs? or would it be worth it to upgrade and to what?

    I also am contemplating what tires I should get...

    I have 265/70/16's now but If I upgrade should I go 265/75/16 or 285/75/16? I Like the look of the 285 way better but my rims already have a big off set. (my 265s stick out about 1.5-2 inches) So I dont know how a even wider tire would look.



    Thanks guys!

    Well first off, You do realise that the rear 5100's aren't adjustable, only the fronts.

    And you will rub big time with the 285's and a 2.5" lift.
    And how far your tires stick out is only determined by the BackSpacing of your wheel.

    I will just run 265s, dont want to have to worry about trimming.

    Alright so should I use AAL's in the back then?
