    i have a 2009 prerunner DC.

    im running camburg spindles in the front and a 3 inch leaf pack in the back
    the truck is pretty level, or like 1/2 inch higher in the front.

    i have some adjustable 5100s that im waiting to put on.


    so my question is: should i set the 5100s at 0" or .85" ?

    ive heard that these shocks settle? and if so, how much? and how long will it take?

    i dont want the bro lean. i just want to sit level. so what whould i do with the front shocks guys?

    completely stock
    well if your using the stock spring or the one that you are currently running, its already sagged.

    so the shock at 0 "should" be fine. and it will not settle since the spring is already compressed
