I just installed the 5100's on mine. So far I like them but my basis of comparison is flawed since they replaced the stock shockes with 130k miles on them

Are they soft? I'm thinking 3" savvy springs and 5100s.

Put some on the YJ and it made a world of difference. They are not real soft but on a leaf spring Jeep they are a plea sent change. I noticed the most change on the dirt road Wheelers Pass Pahrump side like I was floating at 50 mph. Best money spent yet.

Got them from a guy here Kolak shipped no tax $275.

So far I think they are soft but not as soft as I expected. I also replaced the springs and control arms in addition to changing the pinion angles all at the same time so it's hard to evaluate just the shocks. I went with the H&R 1" lift springs, metal cloak control arms, billstein 5100's, and the curry antirock. Till the new springs break in I can't say for sure how I feel about the new setup. At the end of the day I'm really only going to be able to comment on the combination of all the new components together. My goal is a stock height but I needed to compensate for all the weight I've added. Overall it's a much smoother ride with far less bottoming out but it feels less stable on the road. I think that has a lot to do with the changes to the front pinion angle which changes the steering geometry.

Depending on your pinion angle adjustments, yes your caster has changed, and can create a "darty" feel. Also unless you get an adjustable track bar, your axle alignment will be fighting itself through-out the suspension travel even at that small amount of lift.

Try your Anti-Rock in at least the 3rd hole from the end (unless that is where you are at) you may run into having to cut down the rod.

Just as a rule of thumb in my experiences, TJ's are a lot more forgiving on the low side of pinion angle than up.....most people over compensate thinking they need to point the pinion straight at the t-case output when in fact quite the opposite is true.

While I am not a fan of Bilstein 5100's for the Jeep "bolt-in" applications, then tend to be valved on the firm side for most people.

does anybody own or know where a brake pressure gauge could be rented?

^^^ Nope, but pretty sure this is what you need to fix your problem!

And btw, I'm pretty sure we could've had your roof cut off and we could've fully caged your ride in the amount of time it's been down for this simple bolt in axle swap. Maybe even slammed in a diesel swap too.

You wouldn't need to stop! You'd have a cage! You just blast thru whatever is in your way!

I put them on mine last year from Kolak too, were on sale for cheap. Off road, speeding down washboard roads, street potholes/dips, rides great!
