how much better of a ride are they than the factory shocks?
hey bump for pictures mate! not really satisfied with just text. lol i am canvasing shocks for trucks. i dunno which one is the best i have bilstein and rancho on my list. what are the other options that i have? who is the manufacturer of 5100's you are talking about?Love my 5100's. Got 'em on all 4 corners and what a difference!
TA: I don't think what you are looking to do will work out too well. Somebody please correct me if I am wrong, but I think the max you can go it the front if 3" to maybe 3.5" without going for more major parts. I know I am currently sitting 3.25" higher than stock, with stock UCA's and had to do quite a bit of grinding on my coil buckets. Also, looking at the angle of the CV's on the axles, I wouldn't want to go much more. The one aspect many people overlook is, how everything looks when the truck is sitting still on level ground is much different then when you are in a situation with the suspension at full droop. Too much angle on certain parts will tear them up in a real hurry.
