Yes I will just have to bite the bullet and get them installed. I really don't want anyone working on my Truck however with this install I feel it's best to have someone else put them on. Also since it will need an alignment.

What height does everyone set them at? Biggest concern is wobble. Have read that 2.1 greatly reduces the chances. If so would 1.5" be an even safer setting? As the angle would be even less. No plans of putting on bigger tires just want to improve the ride & if I could get rid of some of the slant.

It really all depends on the truck
There are more success than those with issues at 2.8
If you do get it, it isnt that bad as it sounds. It only happens in 4wd and from accleration from stop to go and will fade away at around 15mph or there abouts.

2.5 seems to be the cut off for our rams for levels. The 2.8 setting is actually 2.75 and will settle to about 2.55-2.6". So its within the specs.

if you are worried, go with 2.1 and you will be ok. it will settle to 1.9"-2"

I personally wouldnt run the 1.4 setting as you will regret it once it is done.
Then you will have to take it back to the shop to get it redone and then re align your truck again.
But this boils down to your preference and not mine
So, if it is simply to rid of some of the rake, then 1.4 may work, but I think you will be happy at the 2.1 setting especially once it settles

I am surprised knowone has mentioned the Rancho Quickstrut, it is an R-9000 strut with the coil over on the strut as a complete unit, so you pull your factory coil and strut and set it aside, they are tuneable with 9 presets for dampening and rebound. Rockauto sells them for $158 aside. They raise the front end up to 2.75 inches. The coil is not compressed or loaded anymore than factory, the strut is simply longer.

Awesome thread with priceless information.

I wish it had the "sticky" tag coupled to it so it helps our new members who may be thinking of different leveling options..... on the right way to do it.

I've had leveled trucks before with just the leveling spacers and while they worked fine for the most part, the stress they place on other components never occurred to me. Sure the ride quality went a little stiffer but because these trucks were weekenders at best, it didn't bother me.

I hopped into a 2011 Ram 1500 4X4 Longhorn Crew yesterday with newly installed Bilstein 5100 Adjustables front n' rear. It had 35" Toyo Open Country MT's wrapped around 20X9 XD Series Hoss Chromes. My tire/wheel guy had just finished installing everything. The owner was nice enough to take my for a decent drive and then gave me the steering wheel for a few miles THEN gave me his contact details if I ever wanted another ride before taking the plunge [Ram owners rock!].

Man that ride was SWEET! My only regret was my dumbass didn't snap some pictures on my phone before we departed.

I'm sold.

So when will we see some Bilsteins on your truck?
All I know is I have a lifted truck that seriously drives very smooth for the way it looks.
I only have them up front, but will grab 5125 for the rear

I wanna' get thru the winter with the OEM setup.

I'm predicting early Spring 2013.

I've almost got all accessories picked out and finances reserved so all should be a go ahead when the wether warms a bit.
