    Howdy, after many months of research and questions asked, I decided on how I want to level the truck. I ordered the 5100’s and will go to the top 2.5” setting for the lift/level. I am only doing the front for now. I plan on doing this myself then taking the truck to a shop for alignment. I know this changes the geometry of some things (new UCA’s in the future) but want to get it as close to perfect as I can. Right now the truck steering wheel is perfectly centered. The last two leveled trucks were spacers levels and never got quite right so on this truck I plan on doing it right. This truck is a pavement princess with the occasional off road trip to the deer woods or dirt road to a boat ramp. Thank you for your help

    I did a 2" level kit on my 5100 lowest setting: If you can get the castor to 3 that is the ideal is what I heard.

    I will get it realigned again since I already have 1,000 miles on it and it should have settled by now.

    Appreciate the help. I’ll take that to my alignment shop after I install the kit.
    Do you like the ride of your 5100’s?

    It's better than the 1,200 mile factory shocks. But I did also upgraded my front and rear at the same time. But side by side compression and rebound, the 5100 is a lot firmer.
