    So, it was a sad day when the day I paid off my 05 DC a Subaru decided to pin it our of a parking spot and demolish my front bumper skin. :(

    However, I used it as a new opportunity to buy a Brute Force Fab plate bumper, low profile loop w/ fogs. YAY!

    I have a question though. Currently I have a tiny amount of rake as my front 5100's are set to 2" and a 1' block in the back... I would like to set my fronts to 2.5" but during install I could not get them on. The coils kept hitting the upper control arm, so I gave up and set for 2"

    My new bumper will be heavier so need a little help in the front to level things out. Can I actually get 5100's to 2.5 inch? or do I need new upper control arms or coils or what?? Help please!

    You may want to go with a heavier duty spring. I think the 05’ has a 650lb spring and Sequoia has a 700lb spring that fits.

    Not sure about the adjustable height problem, but have heard the Billys only can go up to the third setting. I have them and they are on the second setting up from stock.
