Currently have the RCX 4 inch on my 2012 Ram, can I use the 5100's to
eliminate the rake, rear approx. 1 inch higher........set 5100's (in front)
at .7...........will the 5100's work with the RCX lift??

Thank You!

Yup, that will work no problem. Most guys use the Bilsteins with lifts to eliminate the rake. I had Bilsteins at 1.4" on my RCX 6" kit. Worked like a charm!

Thanks guys.....appreciate the advice......Fast, I ordered 5100's from
Bully Performance. I am thinking I will need a spring compressor to
Install those shocks. Tires to follow soon, I like the Wrangler Duratrac,
Size LT275/65/20.......34.1 inch diameter. I don't want to go too big,
Having the 3.55 gears.
