I installed the 5100’s front and rear. Set the fronts at the 4th notch from the bottom, otherwise you need longer upper control arms, that raised the truck exactly 2” at the wheel opening in front, the rears only, no blocks, so now the truck sits level. With the stock springs there’s no added harshness, but definitely a more controlled cycle of suspension action and almost no harsh bottoming out, even over speed bumps that it did before at lower speeds. Off road it seems like once you get going at a higher speed than before, there’s less head toss side to side and less porpoise like up an down motion. Plus the overall enhancement in ride and handling is noticeable. The extra 1” of suspension travel makes a difference. Well worth the $$$.
