Rough country 6" and bilsteins
 
My question is, the rough country is 6 in the front and 4.5" in the rear. If you have used the adjustable front bilsteins, what height are they set at. I was thinking at the 1.4" lift setting. My truck is a 2011. 3" higher in the rear.
Does this work??
I want the truck level.
Thanks for any input you peoples can share.
Ted.

Max your Bilstiens out and get a TGC 1" rear spacer and you'll be darn level :D

Thanks for the input. If I don't use the rear spacer, then I use use the 2.1" setting on the struts?
Another question for you. What is the ride like in your truck now? About the same as factory, better or worse?

It's stiffer than factory, but in a nice way. I have some Bilstein 7100 SBRs that were going to be installed, but they should be a nice improvement over the RCX 2.2 shocks, should be AMAZING :D

Depends on what your rake is now? The 1.4" would prolly suit you better, the 2.1" would be a Cali lean for sure :D

I am approx 3" higher in the rear. I am also a 2011. Did the rear lift approx 4.5" as they state? 1.4" would work if the measurements are as RCX says it is. 6 front and 4.5 lift in he rear. Maybe I will go with the bilsteins shocks in the rear also. I don't want to loose to much of the ride quality.
Thanks for yur input.

Not sure on how much it actually lifted it. when the 6" went on so did the Bilsteins at 1.4" and a .75" RCX rear spacer. This had a little lean, mine now has some lean. But I like the lean, I usually have shit in my bed :smiley_thumbs_up: You won't lose much quality. If you go with Bilsteins for your RCX lift, you want these.....Bilstein p/n AK7114SB. Some of the guys are running 1" spacers and say they are perfectly level, imo as I havent done that setup :4-dontknow: Sounds about right tho bc I'm anywhere from .5"-1"+ higher depending on where and when I measure hahaha
