Are these Blisteins only for 4th gen? Will they work on my 2nd gen 2001 sport? If not, what would be the Equivalent?

Bilstein has made shocks for many years and for just about any make/model out there. Your application will be different than the 4th gen, so you can check their website for your truck.

The adjustable front Bilsteins to level your truck are only for late 3rd gens and 4th gens. Your 2001 has a completely different front suspension set up. I believe a leveling spacer is your only option to get any front end lift. But as ALLPAR said you can add Bilstein shocks as well for better ride quality. They just won't be giving you any lift.

When installing the 4 shocks (5100 ride leveling), everyone is talking about the 2.1 setting in the front. I assume the rears are than set to 0 or is this all dialed into the "tuned system"?
Thanks

The rears are not adjustable. Only the front. Setting the front at 2.1 allows you to level the front with the rear that sits higher than the front from factory "factory rake". Setting at 2.1 will leave a little rake in after the shocks settle in. You can look previously in this thread of pics of mine at 2.1.

When coupled with the magnaflow exhaust S&B CAI I've also seen fuel mileage gains as well. You have to keep your foot out of the extra ponies you have to see it, but when I set my cruise on the highway at 70 I'm averaging around 22MPG. IMO it was worth it, I got it from Autoanything.com for $419 with our forumz discount of 16%.
Hi there does it shift more firm,and snappy or what with the tuner.Thank truck looks awesome

Yea, it shifts snappier and more firm, much better throttle response. It really wakes up the Hemi and releases its full potential. Thanks for the compliment.
