Those interested i decided on setting the Bilstien 5100 at 2.8 MAX setting. So far no clunking or wobble. I dont do much off road but this ride is incredible. Didnt think i would really feel a difference till i crossed some railroad tracks at 50mph and didnt feel much. Jhinkle1989 hooked me up with a great price and fast shipping.

Also to note. The rear measured at 32" and the front at 31 3/8" leaving a 7/8" rake. Not noticable and truck doesnt squat in the rear on acceleration.

Now im ready for some rims/tires and 6"lift

Looks great! 2.1" makes a big difference for sure! I am planning to do the same...

How do the suspension angles look? Did you happen to shoot any photos of the CV angles?

Truck looks amazing man!! I'm most likely going this route too with my truck. What fender flares are on your truck now? I love the subtle look of them? I'd definitely pull the trigger on these flares!!

Thanks. The flares are factory for the Laramie. I have thought about getting other flares that are slightly bigger since ill be going with a 6" BDS lift and rims and tires.

Thanks. I only installed the Bilsteins on the front for now. But i am very happy with the ride and will do the rears as well to compliment the front.

Measurements were taken center of the wheel from the ground to the bottom of the flare.

jhinkle1989 - I'm in the same boat as the poster above as a new member. I'm leaning towards the Bilstein 5100's over the HBS spacers, but I'm unable to pm you. Could you pm me your price for the Bilsteins please?
