Guys, I'm having some second thoughts on my leveling due to some horror stories I've been reading on here about bad vibration. I do not want vibration, but I also really hate the raked look. Since I'm doing the Bilstein 5100's, I am considering going with the 1.4" setting that the shock provides instead of the 2.1". I am thinking this for 2 reasons actually... 1.4" might still provide a slight rake for towing (which I don't do a lot of, but still do on occasion), and more importantly, it might lessen any chances for the vibration. I need some suggestions here. What do you all think? Should I chance the 2.1" lift or go down a notch to the 1.4" setting?

Alright, unless some drastic mind changing happens, I'm going with the 1.4" setting on the Bilsteins. I know it's not "level", but it's only .6" from the level setting. A half inch isn't going to bother me I don't think... and if it does... I can always readjust to the next setting. That's the beauty of the Bilsteins I guess. Will open a new thread with pics on my mods as soon as i can. Thanks for the help guys! (and BTW, when I do, I think it may be the first post with a 4th gen at the 1.4" setting!)
