Default 3" body lift w/ billstein 5100s?

Anyone have a 3" body lift with billstein 5100s set up? I have an 07 1500 and can't quite squeeze 35s with the 3" lift. I'm hoping the 5100s can give me a boost so I can run bigger tires w/ a negative offset. Thanks!

what offset are your wheels?

i have just a level with my bilsteins and fit 35s just fine. i mean they are small 35s but plenty of room for full size.

running -12mm offset


so the bilsteins will definitely help you

I haven't ordered them yet. I'm only going a -12, maybe a -24. I just wanna make sure I can fit the tires. My 33s look kind of ridiculous on the rear. I need to level it out and beef it up. I'm hoping the 5100s will level the truck out.

Sorry I'm just getting back to the thread. I actually went with Pro Comp Runner SS's. I looked into the 5100s quite a bit but made my final decision to go with the pc's. I'll upload pics as soon as I get them installed. (With all this bad weather, it may be spring time.)

Oh sweet! Hadn't heard of those before. Looks like a very good option

I'm in Pasadena, AA County. Looking to possibly move over to the other side of the bridge though. I just picked up a new job with Ocean City Fire Dept.
