got my bilstein 5100's installed today!!! I have a 2011 sport and I set them at 2.1. About 1/2 difference in wheel well gaps from front to back. perfect in my opinion. Hopefully it doesn't settle any more than it has already. Thanks for the write up shelby! Helped quite a bit. Couple things I would add is for the cap on the top of the shock I found it way easier to put the shock in a vise and just use a flat screwdriver and tap it off with a hammer. THat's just me though. Also I didn't need to disconnect the steering at all in order to get the shocks in. One less thing to take apart.

For everyone out there who's debating on this project. Just do it! Even if you don't want to lift the front at all, the ride is like night and day. Soooo much better with the bilsteins!
