You have to remove the shock to adjust them and "can" be done in your garage with a spring compressor. It has to be aligned after install since you're changing the height of the truck. If you have access to a shop it would make it a lot easier on ya. Replacing the rears as well will get the most out of the bilstein shocks as they are meant to work together. It's worth the extra $$...IMO.

I run AMSOIL synthetic oils in my engine, rear diff and transmission. I've also I stalled the S&B CAI and a Magnaflow exhaust. I have the 3.55 gears and run only 89 octane gas. I hand calculated it and read 19.5MPG on the EVIC my last long trip.
