I have a set of Bilsteins sitting in my closet. Haven't installed them yet. This thread and other posts I've read are making me nervous about doing any type of lift to my truck. I want to lift it, but I bought a Ram mostly due to how it rides compared to other trucks. I don't want to negatively affect the ride quality.

If you will be installing the Bilstiens from every post I’ve read they will actually improve the handling of your truck. The nice part about installing Bilsteins is that if you change your mind and decide that you don’t like ride of a leveled truck you can always drop them back down to your stock height… Its kind of a win win for you, I say go for it!
