Default Bilstein FTW!

Just got my Bilstein 5100's installed today @ 2.8, little bit of a nightmare on the driver side but was able to work through it. Had the mounting bolt for the shock through the control arm freeze up on me. Truck looks great (will post pictures) and feels great.

So after installing the Bilsteins, I noticed that the front is sitting slightly higher than the rear not much at all but its something I can notice. Now are any of you guys doing anything to the rear to help get a little more level/lift out of it? Thanks for any info!

I'm doing bil's at 2.8 and 1.5" spacers this saturday. Won't be doing UCA's, not worried about it.

I measured my truck to be 39" in the rear to the top of the wheel well and 36.75" in the front. So setting my bil's at 2.8 would have made it sit nose high. That's why I went with rear spacers.

I wanted 1" spacers in the back but couldn't find any that bolted in like the 1.5" ready lift spacers do. In the end I'll have the front up 2.8" and the rear up 1.5" so it will level it more than it is now.. but basically look like the whole truck got an even lift.
