Default Bilstein? looking to raise the front

Hello,
im new to this and have a 2012 ram 1500 crew cab and was looking at raising the front.

Im looking at bilstein since thats what a lot of people on here like or if there is others let me know.

also im looking but cant seem to find the right ones so i need some help if you guys know a part number or a link to them

Also, do i just need to buy the front or do i also have to buy the rears also? and last question how much do shops roughly charge to install them?

Thanks for the help!!

assuming you have a 4 wheel drive truck bilstiens are they way to go, also rancho makes a good product, and so does procomp, all achieve the same results, but are a little bit different, you can check them all out here [url]discountautoperformance.com/store[url]

direct link to the procomp strut assembly

http://discountautoperformance.com/s...roducts_id=131

direct link to the procomp strut assembly (this is for a 2002-2008 however it is the same specs the our 4thgen truck they 4th gen truck part number is zx2014 we do not have the one loaded in the site yet so if you want to order one just put zx2014 in the notes, both are the same price)

I just had the Bilsteins installed on my 12 and had them set at 2.1 inches which seems to be about perfect. I opted to have the front and rear done at the same time but don't know if that is necessary since the truck is brand new. To have all four of them done cost me $275.00. I live on Long Island in NY. I'm sure someone else will be along shortly to help you with the part numbers.

Yes, 2.1 is very close to level and almost eliminates any potential problem. If you arent raising the rear this is a good setting. I paid $100 to get them installed just for the front. If I had a spring compressor I would def do my own. They were done in an hour and a half. I will dig out part numbers if no one else posts it soon. I am satisfied with the kit and ride is very close to stock.
