I just got my Ram and I want to get it level in the worst way. Can't stand a rake. Just undecided as to the route to take.

I figured this poll would gather the general consensus.

I love the ride improvement of my 5100s. yes it is slightly firmer but feels more solid. I drive down a road on my way to work that is very badly cracked and the blacktop is breaking up in places it is about 1.5 to 2km and the stock shocks made the truck rattle and shimmy now i just cruise right over them no wandering banging or rattling. All said I love the ride in my truck now and the fact that it sits level is just a BIG bonus. Get them you wont be sorry!

I put them on my 11 1500 4x4 Quad last week. I LOVE the difference. Perfect stance and ride, for me. I will be putting on the rear Bils soon. It firmed up the front just enough. It felt a bit on the squishy side before the mod. I put the snap ring on the highest (2.8") setting. After putting roughly 80 miles on the truck with about 10 of them off road in 4 Hi theres no signs of the 4 Hi shutter or any front end "death wobble". Very happy!
I also bought the rear lift spacer kit from Ready Lift. I will most likely sell it because I like the truck just the way it sits.

BTW, I bought mine from 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers, but I know Central 4 Wheel has them too, for those looking.
