Just curious...anyone have any "clunk/noise issues" with the 2.8" setting? I've read that some do. I imagine that any noises from the 2.8" setting might be from the shock "topping out" when fully extended. I have absolutely no noises or problems so far with the 2.1" setting, but I thought I'd ask.

I'm ordering a leveling kit for my '09 1500 2wd this week. I was leaning toward ordering the 2" spacers from Fat Bob's Garage but after reading about the Bilstein 5100's, I may go that direction. I was looking at a couple sites and didn't see the 5100's for my 2wd, though I could've missed it. Does anyone have a part number for the 2wd 5100's? Thanks!

sorry for the crappy pics, better to come, front looks taller but it sits perfect, hell of a time to get alignment done due to systems not being updates past 2010, same suspension, some places just being wimps......

Looks great...Do you have the 5100s all the way around or just the front?
