Great info. I'll let you know the rake when I get home, then we'll see what I need.

35's are bang on for 4" lift...im optin for a 3 in body lift and 37's when my pro comps go..hopefully not for a few years ...my 4" lift cost me a total of about $400, did all the labor myself. 260 for the bilstiens and 120 for the RC 1.25" body lift.and 20 bucks for use of the spring compressor at my local garage

I'm thinking about 37's myself,but will need to do bilstiens in the front and new rims,because I am shure that they would rub with the set up I have now.On anouther note I had chrysler install my 6" procomp lift when I bought the truck new and with the extended warranty I have full coverage,I know this because there where a few issues and I had to get a local 4x4 shop to fine tune and fix properly and on the dealerships dime rental car included lol.

So I measured the rake today, the front sits at 36 3/8" and the back is 39 3/8", 3" rake then.
So my brother I law is working at a shop so he's looking after the lift, but he's telling me that they won't install the Bilsteins on the truck, neither will two other shops he talked to. They say the service and warranty from Bilstein is nil, so they won't sell their product anymore. Has anyone else run into that?

What offset are you rims? You got 18" octanes if I recall?
37's for sure on your lift.

0 issues. Not sure what BS they are feeding you. They just lack the knowledge. Find another shop or show them the Bilstein.
All it is, is lack of knowledge

You can go with both shocks. The bilsteins are only adjustable in the front. I am running the Bilsteins in front and fox shock upgrade from BDS in the rear
