Bilstein 5100 for 05?
 
I'm got a stock 05 Ram with 265/70/17. I'm looking to get some 285/70/17 and possibly level it out a bit, maybe an inch or 1.5 max. I've been searching Bilsteins. Is there a 5100 for my year? What would be a great shock for a truck that sees 90% on road?

no bilsteins for your truck. u have torsion bars up front. actually u can crank them up and gain up to 2-2.5" safely

I'm not looking for them to use to give me lift(I know there are torsion bars), moreso a better ride. The shocks on there now are junk. My old Dakota rode just like this thing and a set of Monroe Reflexes was like magic for the road manners. I guess I could go the same way but there's no fun in that, this truck is so much nicer haha.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can get the 5100s for the rear. What would be a good complementary shock for the front? I suppose I could just do the Bilstein HD up there. You would think they could make the same design shock as the rear without the height adjustment to use up front.

It sucks that they dont make 5100 for our year truck, I had a set on my 03 ZR2, best shocks ever.

Here is what I plan on using.

Bilstein shocks F: BE5-6928-H0 | R: BE5-2550-H1

you said you were looking at leveling your truck 1 -1.5" and were looking at bilsteins..that's why I proceeded to tell you they don't make adjustable ones for your truck.

No problem, I asked the same question a few months back with no answer. Just glad I could help out.
