    Quick question, getting my 6112s changed from a 1.9” to 2.5” next week and also adding a Toytec shackle to the rear. I have Bilsteins 5100 in rear and I am debating on if i should go 1” or 1.5” in rear. Any input?

    I have also heard that with the Bilsteins 5100 in rear I can go higher than the 1” setting?? Any truth to this?

    I'm at the highest setting on my @BOSS4x4s shackles and running 5100s. I have 2" of lift.

    I have 6112s with 2.5" of front lift.
    I first had the Toytec shackles on the 1.5 and it was too high.
    I then put it on the 1" setting, running that now.

    Honestly when I had 2.5" of front lift, the stock shackles made it perfectly level..
    Looks a tad front high, but measured level..

    See build thread below.
    Are you still running at top setting on 2.5 with 1” in rear? How do you like it and which picture has that setup, I’m assuming the top one?

    Yes the top one.
    My 6112s are on the second to the bottom setting with 1 Coachbuilder shim on each side.
    In my head that setting with the shim was going to hopefully make the ride smoother, but was probably just in my head.

    I calculated it to lift 2 - 2.25" (after all my extensive reading) but got 2.5".
    I think I got a little more lift because I have a 2WD.
    The 6112s are stiff IMHO, but the stock black shocks where way too squishy.

    I have 5160 rears.
    I first had 5100 rears because I couldn't find any 5160s, a few months later I found the 5160s.
    They don't ride any different, they just look fancier, I should have kept the 5100 on the rear..

    I would go 1.5" - unless you want the prerunner look.

    As far as what height the 5100's can handle - they are way too short even with a 1" lift on my truck, so another half inch shouldn't really matter - they're too short either way...

    If I had it to do again I'd measure out the extended length 5100 model (sold for 3" lifts - Toytc part B110-P) to see if that may work with a 1.5 lift, but you'd have to measure as it may be too long.
