Default Just installed the 5100's

Just had the 5100's installed yesterday. Set the fronts to 2.1 as I still have a travel trailer I need to tow on trips. I'm actually impressed more with the better ride and feel of the road. Went over uneven railroad tracks that I go over each day and talk about a huge improvement.

The 5100's are just a front replacement shock? So I would leave everything else in place if I were to install these?

Default leveling

Leveled the trucks look good, but putting a load in a 1500 lowers the rear a lot. I haul quite often with my truck and I would be afraid I would be unhappy with the high front end when I am hauling. What'er your thoughts all?

I actually did the opposite and lowered the rear 2" since my truck is 2WD and, in my opinion, would've be pointless to lift it since I can't do any serious offroading. But I love the look, and I get compliments all the time...

I have a 2 1/2" level kit with 35" Trail Grapplers on Stockers. The front wheels are 1/4" spaced out
More road noise, but worth it. I'm not completely satisfied.... I should have done a 6" lift....

Put a 2 1/2 HBC on mine, liking it so far, just saving the pennies for a new wheel/tire combo. Although my front looks higher than my rear which I'm not sure since when I measured it was that much lower and even now they measure the same. Need to get some pics up but I'm lazy about that.
