I got my bilsteins for $220 plus, that's pretty cheap. Definetly worth doing. You can do the install yourself, just rent a strut spring compressor and the rest is very easy. Just be careful while compressing the spring.

Where did you get the Bilsteins? You have a side pic of your truck with the 2.1 level.

Default 2103 Ram 1500 Sport Crew Levelling

Hi Fellow Forum Friends...

I have done a bit of reading and it sounds like the Bilstein 5100 is the way to go for a levelling kit. My question is now around tires & wheels. I really like the XD Monster Black Wheels. I was told to go with the 20x9 as the 20x10 may rub. Given all that - what would you all recommend for tires?

Talk layman with me... any specifics would be awesome so I don't sound like a complete newbie.

Thanks!

You looking for an all terrain or mud terrain tire? My favorite MT is the Toyo.

Does anyone know the part number for the Bilstein 5100`s leveling shocks for the front of a 2013 Ram 1500 4x4, are their a different part numbers for the right and left side? No one lists a part number for 2013`s, they only go to 2012 model year. Thanks

The 2013's will use the same strut as the 2009-2012 trucks. The part number is 24-187367. Here's the link to them on DAP website. http://discountautoperformance.com/b...shock-146.html
