Thanks for the quick response and the additional info, according to my tracking number I should have my 5100's before the weekend, so I am excited to get the nose of my truck up off the ground.

Just out of curiosity all you did was the fronts correct ? and being set at max did you encounter any issues with getting the truck aligned ?

Thanks again the help is much appreciated

No issues. The installers also did an alignment for me. Yes, just the fronts. I will install the rears later.

I would just like to say that after a year and a half and 22,000 miles later my Bilsteins still kick ass.

In my opinion you should get an alignment if you change out the shocks. Also, you do have to take the shocks out to readjust the height.

If the angles change at all you need to get an alignment done. Mine was way off after the installation and setting to 2.1. Yes you have to remove them to change the height adjustment.
