Default Need a lift in Calgary

Hey Forum Friends: Anybody have a tip on who stocks and installs Bilstein 5100s' in Cowtown?. I'm up north in Alberta working and nobody knows what I'm talkin about. Home in a week or two and on short break so I want to mod the "Fargo" before I head "North" again, and before the snow flys.
Much appreciated gang.

Although they don't stock it, I know Kal Tire can order them in and install them for you. If you're looking at a levelling kit to go with it they use the Truxx kits with the Bilsteins. I believe the 5100's you're looking for are adjustable to you would only need the blocks in the back. Hope this helps.

Thanks BJAMIN: Yes, these are the leveling shocks, P/N 24-187367 Front / 24-187374 Rear. Look like the correct way to go. Tall Geolanders and just maybe I won't have to replace this truck with something more appropriate. I think there is a Kal Tire near my hometown so will try em in AM. Thanks.

OH DUUUUUH, Just checked Essex. IN CANADA. Thanks


Well that was painless. Thanks so much Platinuminjected. What now "frosts" me is how a "retailer" can justify charging three times what I just bought these for, (will be at home when I get south), and telling me "that is only 5% over our cost!!!! Damn. I know they have to make a profit, that.s why they are in business but 3X!!!!. Sure love this site. Now for some slightly taller nice "dual purpose A/T tires". Rockdoc.

(Kal Tire to be honest would get them through Essex) check out pricing. Doesn't hurt, I used them in Vancouver and it worked out well.

OK It took a while but everything on Bilstein 5100s' is done. Just gotta pick out tires. Essex distributors were amazing. Very thorough on tracking shipping etc. Here are some snaps of lift at the local Dodge store.

WOW WOW WOW! Just up on my second well since installing shocks. It has totally changed how the truck behaves on these "bush roads". MUCH more firm and no "wallowing" when loaded on hiway. I was set to give up and buy a new Ford Raptor, (yeah I know I know!), but the Ford is nicely set up for a 1/2 ton and it seemed I had no other choice short of 3/4 ton units. I'm hangin on to the Dodge for another season for sure. TRY THESE SHOCKS if you need a slightly firmer ride, a little lift, and more positive feel off road.
Thanks for the tip Ram forums.. The ole rockdoc
