Here's what I'm thinking:

Install front Bilsteins at 2.1
Rear Bilsteins with no spacer
BFG KO2's 285/65/20 keeping stock rims

Looking for any pros & cons with this set up.

Will the tires rub?
Do the rear Bilsteins make a noticeable difference?

That should look good. I'm not sure if you'll rub with just 2.1, but I don't think you will. I have those tires with those sizes, but I set my bilsteins as 2.8.

You'll be fine. You'll notice the difference. They are great shocks.

This is the exact set up I'm thinking of going with. I also was wondering how much of a difference the rear Bils would make. Still undecided if I want to go 2.1 or 2.8. I feel like with 2.1, you can get away with no rear spacer, 2.8 may require one to keep at least some rake. Let me know how you like the setup, assuming you'll get this done before me (takes me a while to convince the wife to let me do "unnecessary" upgrades)

Just order front and rear 5100's from summit, It's going to be a week or so before I get the chance to install them. I'm hoping to do the tires at the same time. I'll let you know how the set up works.
(you don't have to convince the wife if she doesn't know:)

I installed the bils on the front and then did the rears the next day. You'll notice the difference between having them on the rear verses not having them. I highly recommend them all the way around.

I'm really looking forward to getting the Bilsteins (front & rear) installed, It's going to a couple of weeks before they're on. I'm hearing good things about doing all 4 rather than just the fronts.
