Bilstein lift? Struts and rear coil
 
Alright guys,
I'm ready to do this kit or the rancho strut upgrade. Does anyone have either? And can you tell me how the ride is and everything with the 2.8 inch bilstein setting on the struts. And anyone having and issues or noises with this kit?

Hello chad. I have both the front 5100 Bils set at 2.1 and Bils 5100's in the rear for 6Kmiles now and I would describe the Bilsteins as slightly firmer than OEM on the street, and much more stable on rough or uneven roads...Plus with Bilsteins you just can't beat that Lifetime Warranty. JMHO. :smileup:

same for me...exact same set up and same impressions. very worthwhile and takes that floating car ride away from the truck and puts it back in the more rigid, sport like suspension...makes it a truck again...

it was level when i had the spacers up front i just didnt remove the rear spacer when i did the bilstiensnot sure if im gonna leave it alone or not but the intention was for level

Thanks guys! Yeah that looks great, I was wondering how it would ride set at 2.8. And how bad the angle is on the front end.

I have the bilstens set at 2.8 and I have the TGC rear coils and I love the ride little bit firmer. And a little more payload. A lot less squat in the rear when towing. My truck still has a bit of a rake to it but it sits level when towing my 4 place snowmobile trailer loaded and the bed loaded with gear+ 4 grown men in the cab. If you look at my picture gallery I have several pics posted with the lift and also towing
