Cool Went with the bilstein 5100 leveling struts

I bought them from 4wheelparts. One of the boxes was missing the hardware kit so they overnighted a whole new one from California. I can't say how much that amazed me. Wonderful customer service. I got them on yesterday and I do have some vibration in 2wd just driving down the road. Mainly when going around a curve at speed. However my tires are cupped and out of balance and it needs aligned. I will be taking care of all that in the next week or two and will post up if it took care of the vibration. My wheels are 17x8 +10 offset. 315 70 17 should fit. I will probably go back with bfg at ko. Been looking at the trail grapplers but I want something thats going to last awhile and the at ko's seem to run forever. I will post up some pics of the new tires when I get them on.

Looks great. What setting did you go with? Please do update on the vibration after the alignment. Also, maybe check 4x4 after the alignment and see if you have vibes there? Thanks and congrats!

That looks great man! That's exactly the look I am going for. Can't wait for the update on the vib issues. What size are the BFGs in the picture?

Still haven't got new rubber or an alignment yet. I want to put a few miles on it to make sure it settles in. Just a few tidbits of info., I went with the highest setting and measuring from the body line it sits a half inch higher in the rear. The current tire size is 285 70 17. Stopped on a straight stretch the other night and put it in 4hi and hammered down up to 70, no vibration. Still some vibration in 2wd driving around curves at speed, still guessing the tires are causing the vibrations, hope so anyway.

Well I couldn't wait. I went to tirediscounters.com and got some new rubber. I went with BFG AT KO, 315 70 17, they fit with a good half inch between the sidewall and plenty of clearance everywhere else. No rubbing! They are the gm code tire. The wheels are pacer 17x8 with +10mm offset, and I'm not running spacers. I love it, looks awesome. It ran me 1275.00 out the door mounted, balanced, nitrogen filled, and aligned. I think I did ok.
I am pleased to report that after the new rubber and alignment it has NO VIBRATION, SHUDDER, OR DEATH WOBBLE! It is however 10mph off on the speedo and I need to use a bit more go pedal, a little more on the brake pedal to stop too. A brake upgrade, 4.10 gears, and a truetrac are on the to do list. Sorry for no pics, its been raining all weekend. I will get to it this week.

looks good man, real good. I want to lvl mine out and eventually lift it in the next coming months, but if i can by a lift kit without the shocks that'd save some money if i can just buy the bilstiens. i know i am gunna need all four round, but will i needta buy the adjustables all around or just for the front? will they fit an 05? sorry to rack ya with so many questions. gotta say again though man it looks amazing
