Just checked the sight....so many there. Which one is it?
That's a nice shifter. The shifter shaft simply slides over the stock shaft and tightens with a set screw. Mine was the same way. No modding required.

Finally got my rear shocks in from Bilstein.....5 months after i ordered them.

Bilsteins all around (front set at 2.8)
1" rear spacers
1" body lift
20x8.5 XD Spys (+18 offset) with hubcentric rings
285/65r20 BFG AT KO
No rubbing, no wobble, if anything it's a smoother ride.
Sets very close to level. About 1/2 inch higher in back just like i wanted.





Only thing left on my "to do" list now is a Line-X bedliner. I'll get that in a couple weeks.

Question..... Are you bilsteins in the rear adjustable as well or you just got the heavy duty one and added the spacer?
Im considering doing the same thing just not sure on route....

The rear ones are not adjustable, but they allow for an extra inch of travel allowing you to put a 1" spacer without changing the ride.
Every truck is different, but after looking and reading a lot, I decided to put the 1" in the back and it turned out great. I've seen others with nothing in the back and they look good too. Just depends on the truck. Good luck!

Thanks.
I think I'll either do without the rear or just get the rear adjustable one as well.
Do the 1" in the rear and 2.8" in the front.
This should almost level it but till give me the slight rake I want

Correct me if i'm wrong, but bilstein doesn't make an adjustable rear shock.
It says 0-1" beside the rear bilsteins (part # 24-187374) but that just means they have a longer travel and you can put a spacer if you want. There's no way to adjust them. A lot of people get confused on that.
Does somebody else make an adjustable rear shock?
