Default Wil Bilstein in front squat rear

Wanting to add Bilstein adj. In front set at .7 1.4 or 2.1. I don't want it to be level just want front lifted a little. I like my Ram having the rake look but, will lifting the front with Bilstein shocks at these settings make the clearance on the rear tire be less or squat the rear.

If you wanted to lift the front more (to clear bigger tires for example) you could always set the Bilsteins at 2.1" or 2.8" and then add a rear coil spacer to achieve what ever amount of rake you wanted. Just a thought....

Top Gun Customz makes many different sizes of rear coil spacers for fairly cheap prices if you're interested.

I didn't want the level look just less rake + more height so I'm having mine set at 2.1 and a 1" TGC rear spacer installed on my 2012 in 3 days. I would go with the Bilstein's maxed but after reading some people say slight wobble and more stress on suspension ect. I am scared to push past 2.1 because this truck is going to be a daily driver keeper and getting the maxcare lifetime warranty next month.

I am keeping stock wheels they are the 2012 chrome wheels but I just had a new set of Cooper Discoverer A/T3 - 275/60R20 115T BW - All Season Tire $206. each mounted and they are great tires. I like "street" trucks as I drive on paved roads and actually think the lifted trucks with mud tires look awful and such a shame when done on new trucks. Just my opinion so don't bash me monter truck owners lol. If I was into off-roading I would do it to a older truck because these newer ones ride so nice. The Bilstein's at 2.1 and a 1" rear spacer is as far as I will ever go on lifting just to correct the 4x4 that looks like a 2wd. I need a camera but mine is a Black Quad Express 4x4 all stock except 24" Magnaflow, Mopar Fiberglass hard tonneau, Cooper tires and on monday a set of 4 Bilstein's installed + allignment.
