Bilstein 5100 front leveling shocks
 
I have purchased a set of Bilstein 5100 series shocks to level the front, and am undecided on which setting to go with. I know I don't want the highest setting. (1=.60" - 2=1.25" - 3=2")
Does anyone have pics they can posts of their ride with Bilstein's at these settings? Any pics are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Does anyone have pics of your truck with the Bilstein 5100 shocks installed without any other kind of lift kit? Shocks sitting in the corner of the garage waiting on me to decided which setting I want is killing me ! Please post pics.

Use the full 2 inches & it'll be perfectly level. Hope you bought 5100's for the rear too, totally changes the ride. Well worth it!!! :smileup:

NIce pic 08Shorty...Thanks. Yes I have the rears also..can't wait to get em on. I expected the full 2" to rise the front too much.....looks good though. Do you have any pics closer to see fender well clearance buy any chance?

Where did you buy these leveling shocks from? I am looking to level my 01 and I dont really trust coil spring spacers.

Bought them here:

Didn't want to run spacers either....too much loss of down travel.

Eshocks & Jackit.com both have them, look on the Bilstein site at the list of distributors & start calling around to see who has them in stock.

What exactly do you want pics of? There's no rubbing in the front, i used 1'' spacers to get the 35's away from the control arm.

Will be running stock 20's. Just wanted a closer look to make sure front didn't appear to be higher. Looks good...Nice ride!

I wish they made these for the 2500's!!!!

After reading through all the threads, and getting feedback from other members; I think I will be setting the Bilstein's on the 1st setting (.60"). Will post pics when complete.
