5100 on middle notch up front to level out the stink bug look. Differential drop to save the CV joints from the new angle as well. Billy HDs on rear. No more front end diving into vados and bottoming out. 7 years no problems.

The three lift settings over stock are listed as:
1) 0.85"
2) 1.75"
3) 2.50"
Make sure to have an alignment done if you raise the front of your truck.
Mine are at the first lift setting. The rear lift or "stink bug" angle is controlled by the air in my Ride-Rites (airbags).

Chuckie, do you have leafs in front/back or both?

Not surprised it was the air bags. What are you towing these days that you still need the air bags? Do you have a truck camper on the rig?
