Default Bilstein 5100's and 24" Mufflex are installed! (PICS)

Got the awaited Bilstein treatment today for the front of the Ram! After much consideration I went with the 1.4" setting which definitely took some sag out of the front, but still left some rake for towing. All in all I am happy with it. Ride is excellent, and no vibration noticed so far! And if at anytime I wanna go up, I will just adjust the Bilsteins. That's the real payoff for me. Oh, and I didn't say anything, but installed the 24" Mufflex last week! Sounds tough!! Let me know what ya think!

Boy! Your fast! I just posted that! Thanks!! A local Wheel & Auto shop did the install and alignment. I ended up paying $140 total (minus the Bilsteins). So I have about $340 wrapped up in the setup. A little more than a spacer kit, but I can adjust, they can't!

I actually priced a 4x4 specialty shop here and they had quoted around $550. Seems like doing it separate is the way to go. I ordered the Bilsteins form TireRack.com and they were at my door in 3 days and priced at a little over $200 shipped for the pair.

$1200 to install Bilstein 5100's? I want whatever those guys are on. That's ridiculous. I had quote of $650 to install a 6 inch lift with mount, balance, and install of tires included in that. Almost twice that for something that is a lot less involved sounds outrageous.

Looks good man. Ya you wont have vibration in your truck. If you look at your CV shafts they are straight and thy have no angle. You can go all the way up and still be fine.
