Default Question about Bilstein Lift

Mopar offers the lift kit with the Bilstein shocks for $839 as seen here

http://allmoparparts.com/1500-lift-p...ks-p-4299.html

This kit comes with new coil springs for the rear.

Is this what everyone orders or do you just replace the shocks?

What is the noticeable difference in this set up vs the shocks only.

I want to do this the right way and have the best ride quality for my 2014.

If all you want is a 2" lift (level) then the Bilsteins is all you need. Set them at 2.1" and your good. Some replace the rear shocks as well. I just did the front level.

You don't rally need the rear coils. You can get all four shocks for about $350. That said, it isn't a bad kit if that's what you want.

What difference would you notice with the new rear coils vs without?

Also there seems to be a couple of brackets in the kit. What are these for?

You can put up to a 2"spacer in rear to change your rake instead of coils the brackets are to adjust sway bars over 2"it messes stuff up

coils are a great idea.... but dont buy from mopar, hit up fastnugly for some bilsteins for up front and im sure he can find you some coils. mopar is a rip off
