    Want to find 5100's for all four corners. Would have to ship to me unless your a reasonable distance from zip 24963...

    P.S. pro comp shocks and rear blocks suck! Lol

    I was Gonna set the front up on the middle notch, thinkin that will pretty much level me out, the rear is stock leafs...I was planning on leaving them as they are. If that don't get it for me, I guess then I can go the the top notch and maybe put a one inch block in the rear...lol. But now as I await them in the mail I am looking at 3" kits ha ha :D

    Ah yeah. Ive just read a lot of stuff on here about axle wrap...Seems that the rear lift blocks make this problem worse, but thats what i have for now until i can buy a new leaf pack.

    Yeah you know your right about the blocks, I was looking at rear springs and the prices aren't bad for just the aal's. I put the rear 5100's on this morning, was gonna do the front today also but the rains moved back in. I measured my truck height from center cap straight up to fender well, the rear is 21" 3/4 and the front is 20" 1/2, I'm gonna go for the middle setting on the front struts...:D
