still haven't done mine yet, but I'm going to do the 1.75 front, 1" spacer in rear
Now i got the 1" cornfeds and 1.5 daystar rears for sale. Lol....let me know ...Daystars still brand new in the box.

MAJOR improvement in looks and ride quality!! No more major nose dive during breaking and it soaks up bumps better. Absolutely zero rub and I get to leave the mud flaps on!

I was worried about it looking "goofy" with that amount of lift on 275's, but I actually love the look!!

This lift and tire combo looks perfect! I have 15" TEP and looking to do same combo as you have. Just a few questions, did you notice any power loss with the weight of bigger size tire and i know the mpg will go down just wondering how much? Thanks!

1.75" & 1" & 275/70/17

I notice a very slight power loss due to heavier tire, and have a very minor rub driver side only in full reverse lock, but only in one direction. Everything else is prefect. Happy as a lark!

When I do Bilsteins, I'll either do 0.85 front and no lift in back, or 1.75 front and 1" spacer in back.
Im sorry but i have to ask this. Will it hurt the rear suspension (stock) if i put 1" cornfed with bilstein in the front? I dont do off road, just once a month gravel road (10 miles). I should say 98% pave and 2% gravel road. Thanks.

It won't hurt anything at all. I'd consider spending another $100 and adding the Bilstein shocks to the rear also with the cornfed spacer. That way you'll have the same damping rate on both axles and a little bit of extra room for extended downward travel on the rear axle.

My plan was to just do a spacer in the rear with stock suspension. This makes me feel more feel better. Appreciate the input and i definitely consider rear bilstein too. Thank you.

Bilstein

I have used many shock brands & will never stray away from a Bilstein. 90K on rear shocks & they still were good for highway use.

Does anyone here did 1.75 front & stock or no lift in the rear?

I previously had a 2014 TEP without KDSS. I installed Bilstein 5100s all around and put the front adjustables on the 1.75" setting. No modification to the rear height at first---just installed the rear 5100s by themselves.

The body and fender angles/heights absolutely appeared dead level, and I ran that setup for a few weeks. But something just didn't quite feel right to me. When I really started crawling around and more closely scrutinizing my vehicle, I confirmed that the frame actually did have a slight "negative rake" with that setup. I really don't think that it would've caused any problems, but it just made my OCD hurt to think about leaving it that way.

So I installed a 20mm OME trim spacer on each rear coil, and (for me) that totally solved the problem. The result was a truly leveled T4R---even when hauling a full load or towing a small trailer.

Hope that helps.

Finally someone with experienced chimed. You have no idea how much this will save me. I am scheduled to put the bilstein this coming monday and i am set to put it at 1.75. Coz yes, it will perfectly level the vehicle. Glad i asked.

Thank you!

I just had 5100s installed at 1.75. Stock rear coils with 5100s in the back as well. I still have about 1/2" of rake. Measuring from the wheel centers to the fender is 21.5" front, 22" rear. I'm going to measure the frame one of these days, but she rides like a dream now! There's a pic in the "What'd ya do" thread from today if you want to see it. (I don't have the pic here at work to repost)
