If your truck is 4x4 then you get the 0-1" lift for the rear. Make sure to get the 2.5"lift for the front. Don't for get you are measuring based from the stock height. I hope that helps

I'm not sure if the 5100 will work with the 4 inch block in the back... Fronts should be fine

The front is correct
Part# 24-185776

The rear you want
Part# 24-185783
2500,4wd,with o"-1" lift

Those are the numbers I ordered. I have just a levelling kit I. The front and the back is stock with 4.5" blocks with being a 4wd so they call that 0"-1" lift. You will love the way your truck drives afterwards
Autoanything.com is where I bought them and they are I sale right now also and have awesome customer service.
I hope this helps

Sorry to hi jack but does anyone know they make a 5100 for a 2wd? I checked autoanything and they only show the heavy duty series for 2wd

I dont know for sure but I wouldn't think that they would change the shock mounts for 2wd vs 4wd

I ordered mine from autoanything the other day and they said they wouldn't be shipped until 3/25 so I decided to cancel the order and go to summit racing because their always good to deal with in my experience.

Its about time for new shocks on my truck, how do you like the 5100's? I put some skyjackers on my old dodge (2nd gen gas) and it handled like a yacht! Was awful! I want something that will be good for towing and not bounce like those skyjackers did. lol Just curious what you guys have thought of them?

I installed the front ones on my truck when I put my leveling kit and 35's on and it handles amazing. I just got my rear ones yesterday so they will go in tonight. They are excellent in my opinion just a little pricey.

IMO they seem to have better travel than any of the others I have ever had on. My old ones seemed to take a lot more to get them to budge. These absorb a lot more of the front end travel. My part number for the rears was 24-185783 from summit and the fronts I ordered from SD truck spring when I leveled it because they were having a sale. I don't recall what that part number was though.

Plus from summit mine arrived the next day with free shipping. However I live in northeastern Indiana and they have a facility in Ohio somewhere.

The difference between off the shelf valving and thuren/Carli valving is astounding. Well worth looking in to.

What the price diff though? Haha no, this truck will get a 3" lift at most. It's still a truck. I want to build a chevy prerunner then I will pay attention to valving...

Aligator arms? Get off my wallet? Anyone who knows me, knows I bought a truck, parked it in the shop, and have proceeded to make it rain. :hehe:
