Just an update...i had mine installed today and set at 2.1. The front space between the tire tread and metal fender was at 4 3/4 inches prior to install. It is now at 6 1/2". it added 1.75" of space between tire and wheel opening and it looks completely level although there is 1" of rake when measured.
Now the measurements are from floor to fender edge of 39.5" in rear and 38.5" in front.

I hope they dont sag too much over time as it worked out perfect for my tastes...

As promised...a couple pics of after Bilstiens. Lame, I know, but I didn't take any pictures before of the profile, just the measurements! Too anxious to go get the new shocks I guess!

Setting them at 2.1, it added 1 3/4" of space between tire and fender (putting it at 6.5" from 4 3/4" stock and 38.5" from ground to fender). In person, looks almost exactly level or just a slight rake, but doesn't look like a full inch of rake even though it measures out to 1".

Just a quick question - what setting did you use for your rear Bilsteins? Attempting to get the same look, with a slight rake. Thanks.

Rear Bilsteins aren't adjustable. They're shocks only, not struts like the front end. With stock rear springs the truck will be sitting at the same height regardless of what shock you put on it.

Default Still confused!

So I want to put the Bilsteins on the front (2014 1500 Outdoorsman 4x4 CC) but am not sure what setting gives me what lift. So my understanding is the Outdoorsman would be equal to the Bilsteins at 0.7". So at max setting of 2.8" I would really only get 2.1" of lift.? Correct? Also, where does the Outdoorsman get the extra .7" from? Thanks for any help, I have been searching and this is making my head hurt!
