Not sure what your asking? If you have just the Bilsteins then yes the 2.1 setting for a leveled look.

Are you looking to use the Bilstein 5100's to level your 2wd? Because that's not possible. I'm not sure what is all out there to level the 2wd's. I think CST makes a 3" level. There's probably few other companies out there as well.

It completely depends on your truck. Not all of them come from the factory at the exact same height. They're all a little bit different. In order to find out exactly where you need them set you should measure your truck front and back and figure out what your rake is. Then you can find out what to set your Bilsteins at. Keep in mind if you set it dead level front and back it will probably look nose high. 0.5" - 1" of rake will look level to the eye.
