I compared the 2 and it did make a difference for your rake/levelness

Finally! I get to make my addition to an ever-growing list of badass trucks.

Year/Model:
'12 1500 Sport

Lift Size:
4" w/ 3" Rear Springs and Fox Shocks

Bilstein:
Set @ 2.1

Body Lift:
No

Tire Size:
35X12.50

Wheel Size:
20X9 -12 Offset

Pros:
I own the truck I used to daydream about when I was 12 years old doing my paper route. Beyond that, everything about the truck is just fantastic. I'm not sure I could go back to a factory stock truck ever again.

Cons: I can't use drive up ATMs anymore. Drat!

What is it about these trucks that makes the rake different? 1"-3"?

Im gonna lift in the spring and im leaning towards a BDS 6" kit. I want the most lift possible out of the set-up. So, by going with the 5" rear spring and matching the fronts with 5100's and not using the BDS strut spacer is this possible, safe? I think I have the 3" rake now (need to re-measure but not home). So what should my Bilstiens be set at to get level with the 5" rear springs?

It's not that large of a difference. Its more like 3/4" difference.
Avg rake is 2.75"
If you have a 3" rake right now and you want the 6" BDS and 5" rear you'll need to max your Bilsteins
Every truck that I know with that rake and BDS kit requires maxing of the Bilsteins and there is still slight rake. Prob 3/4" which isn't bad

Let me know if you have any further questions or pricing needs.
