Stance will be exactly level when you are complete.
If you have 3.55 gears as I do then go the body/shock route first. If nothing else you can use the shocks with the lift afterward on factory settings. Going 35 inch on 3.55 hears is going to kill the engine(in my opinion), and will have you pissed off and wanting to turn the MDS off as it won't hold well on highway at all.

Thanks for the info...I just saw your other topic about your 5100 install. I thought that the bilsteins avoided the whole "death wobble" thing, but it sounds like thats not guaranteed.

Not sure what gears I have. I need to send the request to get the info...

What is MDS? Is that the Eco light that comes on??
