Pix would be great. With pix, did you do front/rear or just front? Highest settings? Also, did you use spacers w/ the 5100's?

Sorry, I just don’t want to have to take the front end apart twice. Once and DONE.

my 07 had worn factory struts when i bought it, so it was hard to judge compared to stock, but i Love the ride after. I dont think its to firm at all. rides great. I went top ring all the way with mine. Which made the front end sit up a smidge. after about a week of it like that i added a 1" block to the rear which added a slight rake. Im happy with it but to many leaving the front up would be fine. hands down though the best $200 bucks u can spend. if ur lazy spend the extra $150 and get the Rancho setup that comes with new coils and has adjustability. makes install much simpiler for the do it ur selfer. btw pro comp should have their adjustable ride hight strut out by the end of April. I spoke with them on the phone and theirs sounds pretty promising as an alternative to the 5100.

WITHOUT REAR BLOCKS


WITH REAR BLOCKS

I would say that the ride is very much better than the stockers. I have mine set at max height and did the rears at the same time. I don't get the feeling that Im on the bump stop when hitting big bumps here in Hawaii anymore. I will say that I need new end links for my sway bars as the front feels different. All in all very nice ride and really is an improvement over the stockers
