Default Bilstein Installed with Pics

Installed bilsteins today, set them at max(2.8) Starting to maybe regret that I don't set them at 2.1 like I was advised. The front of the truck it higher now then the back. O took for a spin around the block and trucks feels very weird, haven't got alignment yet, hopefully that will fix the problem. Also has bad wobble in 4x4. How much are these shocks suppose too settle? I have a 4 ich sus lift and 35s if anyone was wondering. The last pic is without the bilsteins. Thx

So you have a 4" suspension lift and bilsteins at 2.8"? What brand lift??
I have 4" and them set at 2.1" and it rides fine..definitely get an alignment and they will settle some too . Was thinking about maxing mine sometime..a buddy has same lift as me with them maxed with no probs

They will settle .25-.5" probably..You can just install rear coil spring spacers also to raise the rear. I have 1.5" spacers on mine

Well i have 4" superlift/mopar 2.1 bils and 1.25 body lift..37" trail grapplers 20x10 hostages..You are the only other person online I've seen run the setup as me. I've been wanting to see one with maxed bilsteins on 4" mopar kit. Really want to max mine!
Just fyi if you don't know..the 4" and 6" superlift kits are the exact same parts. Same crossmember/diff drop etc. Only thing different in the 6" is that they give you a 2" preload (or bilsteins like you did) and the rear has 5" springs and longer shocks instead of the 3" lift coils that come with the 4" kit.

Heres pic of mine

thats a sharp truck!!! I like the crew cabs a tad lower than I want my QC. The length of the cab would make it look top heavy if any taller.
