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.

Any info on those? I saw them too and was wondering if anyone is running them here,

I saw a member recommend getting the Bilstein kit threw Down South Motorsports for $359.99. On the page I noticed it says *Dodge Forum Members please contact us for discounts!!!* Is that this forum?

These are very good units i do not personally run them on my truck but when i go to change my current struts out (probably 30k miles) i am going to put them on my truck along with the wireless kit if interested you can check them out in our online store here http://discountautoperformance.com/s...ancho-139.html we have them onsale right now for $205 each. A little more than the bilstein however it comes with a new coil and is complete, a bit easier to install for the DIY'er and still a very good reputable product.

Part Number: RS999930
Loaded QuickLift Quick-Strut
1.75 in. Lift
Compatible With myRIDE Wireless Controller
Includes Coil Spring, upper mount and strut
9 position adjustable

Rancho's Loaded Quick Lift is the quickest and easiest way to level the front of your pick up or SUV and eliminate the factory nose down rake. The Loaded Quick Lift includes the strut, coil spring and upper mount. It's fully assembled and ready for install. The additional ride height gained will allow you to add larger tires, up to 35 inches depending on application. The Loaded Quick Lift is also adjustable in 9 different positions allowing you to tailor the ride quaility to meet your rig's driving needs and it works with Rancho's MyRide Wireless Controller, which will allow you to make adjustments on the fly, from the comfort of your vehicle's cab, as driving conditions change.

Thanks
Jeremiah

I installed the Bilstein kit and and couldn't be happier. Ride quality is better too, which surprised me since I figured it would be a stiffer ride with the spring being more compressed. The fronts are set on the highest setting btw.

I re-used the factory shock cover boots on the fronts. I noticed photos of other installs running them without them (you can see the chrome rod and yellow bumper exposed) whats up with that? When I took mine apart it was attached to the upper mount, so I kept it in place.

I took the covers off when I installed my Bilsteins. I set mine at 2.1 and couldn't be happier!

Just wanted to say thanks for all the info here, you all have been a great help in
deciding what to get to level out my 2013 Big horn 4X4.
I pulled the trigger and went with 5100s all around with the front being the adjustable ones.
They should be here in a week, now to find a place to put them in. I will post Pics when they are done.

Good job!

I went the identical route as you.... plus Moto Metal 951 Chrome 20" X 9" with Toyo Open Country MT's.

Truck goes in Friday.

I'm sure we'll both be wrapped!
