Default Bilstein 5100's ???

The Bilstein 5100's look great but what increments can they be adjusted to? My truck is 1 & 3/4 in lower in the front if you measure from behind the front tire to the ground and in front of rear tire to ground! Thats a bit much but I do like some rake! A 3/4 in lift would be perfect for me so still have the rake but would sag to level with dirt bikes and gear loaded! Is that possible and do you do fronts only or both front & rear shocks? Part # front BSN-24-187367 at Summitt! Rear part # ??? Thanks for any and all help! BLAKE!

I just had these installed last week on mine. I had mine installed at the highest setting 2.8" higher than factory and it is perfect for me. Mine is a crew cab outdoorsman package truck.

I'm considering going a little higher yet, need to figure out what lift I might want to comfortably fit 35" tires on it.

i don't recall the part number, but I bought mine from Summit as well and they were the only place that had them in stock. You need the Bilstein 5100 series shocks for the year/model Dodge that you have - they do make them for the rear as well but they are replacement shocks only and do nothing with the height. Front is all that I installed and it looks and rides great. i did get the front end aligned after installation.

I went with the 2.1 inch adjustment and it still has alittle rake!! I think you will be very happy with that setting.
