Default Bilstein 5100 install -Very happy

For those considering these and questions the benefits,.. like me,.. well here is my results.
At 45,0000 miles, the new front struts make the truck tight and ride better all around! Rough road chatter bump/potholes are velvet smooth with very,. very little increase in ride stiffness! All the loosness is gone with these, and I didnt even realize it had loosened up from when new.
I didnt measure before and after , but now the dimension from ground to bottom of fender is:
Front - 38 3/8
Rear - 38 1/2
And I used setting 2.1
Could not be happier! If you are on the fence like me,.. just do it!
