    Ok so after reading for about a month I have decided to go with 5100's all around set at 1.75 up front and 2" add a leaf. I like a little bit of rake.

    My question is, what else will I need to safely accomplish this. No UCA right? No differential drop? I like to do things the right way so your help would be appreciated. Thanks

    You wont need UCA's. The diff drop is not really needed/recommended for 2nd gens(Not sure what ya got). Maybe spacer for drivers side lean? Also double check other threads about this topic, theres quite a few
