Default Bilstein 5100's

If i have a 2 3/4" rake in my truck would setting the bilstein shocks at the 2.1 setting still give me a slight rake?

2.8 would theoretically get you almost perfectly level. But a lot of people thing the truck looks nose high on these rams when perfectly level. a little rake is good, esp if you load the bed up with weight.

plus 2.8" runs the risk of getting 4x4 vibs more so than any other setting.

What about with a RCX 6" lift. If i bought the front bilstein 5100's would it level it?

well no bilsteins on the front today....the 5100's that were sent were for the rear so they have me rescheduled for next Friday,but i did the the stampede chrome bug shield and the magnaflo 18" muffler put on so i guess sense they have the rear bilsteins i prolly should just let them install them aswell when they do the fronts with a 1" spacer
