I know this topic has been on numerous times but i haven't been on here for quite some time so sorry about asking again. I have a 2010 titan and when i first bought it i put the leveling kit on so i could run bigger wheels and tires and also i don't care for the rake look but with that being said the ride is real stiff not to mention when you hit a bump it feels like the front end is falling off! With the 5100 will it be a lot better?
thanks

Yes. I had an 06 for 8 years, when I bought a new 15 and it rode like the 06, I swapped for 5100s. I could not be happier. Actually I have 5125s in the back, but still night and day over stock in my opinion.

5100's are night and day different from OEM struts regardless of the regular non Pro4x or the Ranchos on the Pro4x. What size spacer are you running? If it is over 1.5" that is part of the problem, especially when you hit the bumps.

2wd or 4wd? If your 4 wd that spacer is too big and is a big part of why your suspension is so rough when hitting bumps. Your Upper Control Arms are hitting the top of the coil bucket. What I would suggest is putting on Bilsteins, but leave them on the bottom setting, and swap out your spacer for a 1.5" one.

Yeah bet he has crazy coil bucket contact on that. With brand new springs on my 15, I got about 1.5" of lift out of middle perch on my bilsteins. I am not getting any contact, but it's very close. OP send us a picture of the lip on your coil bucket and ucas. You will be able to tell if it's hitting. It will be all dinged up, plus that could bust you uca.

I am interested in getting these Blistein 5100s. Whats up with the 5125s? do you get a little more height or load capacity out of them?

also, would I need to make any other modification to the suspension in order to swap over to the 5100s/5125s? trying to figure out the over all cost, I don't have the equipment or time to install them myself. probably just gonna cave and go to 4wheelparts, unless you have a better recommendation...

Shocks don't add height, but the 5125s are just for the rear and they are a little longer for 0-2" of lift. I'd check with some site sponsors for deals. FYI 5125s need a bushing kit, most of the site sponsors have them.

The 5125 shocks are valved very similar to the 5100, but just a touch firmer and are built in extended length's to accommodate larger rear blocks anywhere from 1.5" to 6"
5100 shock in the back are good to accommodate 1-1.5" rear blocks.
5100 struts are for the front are height adjustable and there are 3 different settings 0 (stock height) 1" and 2" other things to think about if adding the 5100 struts to the front, extended sway bar endlinks and extended bump stops.
