    From what I've read, I don't think so. The middle setting will bring you up 1.57", and anything less than 3" shouldn't require the diff drop.

    So top setting of 5100 with stock springs and stock rear end will give bro lean? Or dead level? I was thinking of the middle setting as i do tow and haul. I want a bit of rake if possible.

    I have a 3/1 readylift kit and i take my truck on dirt roads in the mountains and it does just fine. People always bad mouth spacer kits but if used in the situations it was made for, it works great. It's not meant for rock crawling. The situations where people show busted coilovers and say "this is why you don't get spacer level kits" is just cases where people use their spacer kits in scenarios they shouldn't. My two cents.

    Hi everyone..I read this from beginning to end and I'm still confused. I have a 2017 Sr dc 2wd. I have Firestone air springs to correct sagging during towing. I need to keep 5lbs of air and that raises the truck and I'm fine with it. I want to go 305/50/20 rims and tires. I don't off road maybe a dirt path at a camp ground. I like comfortable ride. what is the minimum I need to do to get those tires in? I'm new to truck lifts.

    Guys I have a ready lift 3/2 on my truck running OeM Bilstein off road shocks.

    Off course the ride is firm but it’s something I can tolerate, had it for 2 years so far it served me well.

    My question if I remove my lift kit and just go for a 6112 at front at highest setting and OME shocks at the rear with 3+ shackles. To give me the ride height I wanted would the change all worth the money and give me a more comfortable ride?

    I guess Im contemplating of spending about 1.5K for the suspension change with a doubt of not havng a significant night and day change in the comfort level.

    Has anyone here have done a lift kit and removed it then did a straight up adjustable struts like the 6112 set up with shackles at the rear?

    Thank you for your opinions.
