    Hey Scott, so sorry, I just saw this message for some reason.

    The fronts are set to the highest setting on the 5100, and the rear just has a 1" block added at the axle. We plan to tow, so didn't want a softer rear, but wanted a little lift back there.

    They are good, the ride is firmer, and can get a little rough over the sharp stuff on the road. They are a great for $$$. I did them myself, the only hard part was the spring compression. The spring compressor I have is a little undersized for truck springs, it will do normal passenger car springs all day. It was tough with the Tundra springs. Install takes about 3 hours. You can rent the proper spring compressor at any auto parts store. I changed out the rear for the 5100. The 5100 is designed with the larger, heavier tire in mind so it controls any hop much better. If you are hauling glass china around in your truck you will want a coilover. I am going to coilovers this tax season, which was the plan all along. I just couldn't wait to get the wheels and tires under it so that's why I did the bilsteins. Take the sway-bar off once you install the 5100. Makes a world of difference. I don't get tossed to the other side of the truck going in and out of driveways.
