I was at 18.5" in front, stock. If the 5100's were set to 2" without the spacer I don't think I would get the height I wanted, running 285's. I saw a measurement of a crd rear MD coil install, he was at 20.7" rear.

The plan is...

Front-5100s set on .75" with the MD coil
Rear-RC spacer (1.5") with the MD coil

My target height is; front 22.5" rear 23" or so.

Anybody do this? I don't know why I always got to experiment and be different. I am tired of taking it apart and putting it back together.

Hey dude, nice! Looks like perfection to me! I will be using MD's in the rear with a 1.5" spacer. How's the ride, front and rear?

It's pretty smooth. I need coil isolators cause I got some metal on metal squeaking. I still scrape the corners of the front bumper but only when I turn into a dip.

Sorry if this has been asked or dumb question, but my 07 commander overland just hit 100, 000 and it needs new shockes and struts. I would really like to just level it out in the front. Could I get that with the 5100s? And save my self money so I dont have to buy a leveling kit and new struts. Also looking to go with the Monroe 58646 Sensa-Trac Load Adjusting Shock Absorber. I would love to just jack it up but its my wifes so I cant go to high. Thanks

Hey guys bit of a specific question. I currently have the rc lift and my front is at 22 and rear with the load levelers is at 22.5. I'm looking to get new struts and get the front to 22.5 (so an extra half inch). Anyone have any idea what the hub to fender measurement would be on a 4.7 if I remove the front rc spacer, get the new 5100's and set them at 2in and add a rusty strut spacer? Or would the 5100's set at the lowest setting with the rc lift get me to 22.5? Thanks for any insight. I'm obviously trying to get both front and rear to 22.5. Thanks!!

RC lift and 5100's are a no go. I tried, that setup has way too much down travel.
