Bilstein 5100s on RWD?
 
Can anyone confirm whether the ride height adjustable 5100s can be installed on a 4th generation CC Ram with RWD? Just looking to level the front. The Bilstein web site was ambiguous as to whether this can be done.

Thanks!

I think they replace the strut and are for 4wd only. Someone will confirm or deny soon I am sure.

I don't think you can use the adjustables. Go to bilstiens website
And it will tell you what shocks are available for your truck. I'd do it for you but it's a pain on my phone

That's what I did, and why I posted the question. I can't tell from the search results (below) what the answer is...

Me too! I called and confirmed there's no application for RWD. Guess I am stuck with spacers.
