you should be able to go 245/75, 255/70, 265/65.. or 245/70 for alittle smaller, but theyll look great.

ill be going 245/75 with a set of wheel spacers

Re: Bilstein HDs W/ 5100s

Think I'm going to go with 255/65/17. Revo 2s. Think I could go 255/70?

Re: Bilstein HDs W/ 5100s

This guy runs 255/70 with minimal rub and even says he has srt springs in the rear. Might just go with the 255/70 since I'll have Bilstein HDs plus the strut spacer. Should be fine.

The 5100's aren't adjustable in the rear? I thought it said 0-1.5" on the website

They are extended length in the rear so you can up 1.5 in lift with those shocks. I think.

yea theyre good for a 0"-1.5" lift. meaning if you install a lift you can run them with a 1.5" or so lift, or at stock height.. 0". the rears are NOT adjustable.

Do you know of a 1" spacer for the rear? I'm looking for one so I can run 1.5" in the front

no i do not.

however, theres a guy on here running his bilsteins at 1.5" in the front and he is pretty level with the rear. BUT if i were you i would run the front on 1.5" and add an extra spring isolator in the rear for a 1/2" boost. should look nice.

Re: Bilstein HDs W/ 5100s

I have HDs front and oem rear. Not level at all. If anything do 5100 at 3/4 front and HD rear or just get the benefit of the complete set and do 5100 front and rear. Thats what i wish i did. I'm doing 5100 rear soon but i wish the 5100 were available when i did my HD fronts years ago. I may do all 5100s next year.

That seems like the way to go for a level ride. I'm debating selling my HDs and getting some 5100s. Or I might just settle and buy the 1/4" spacers for the front.

Re: Bilstein HDs W/ 5100s

I can't find anyone who has the 5100s in stock. Would have to wait until September probably.
