Default Just Leveled with Bilsteins at 2.1

Just got my 2014 1500 Outdoorsman leveled with Bilstein 5100s. I only have Airlift1000s in the rear, so I set the 5100s at 2.1. It's not much lift but I think it looks so much better and I am pleasantly surprised with the ride quality over the stock struts. I'm thinking about adding the rear 5100s. Can't wait to burn through these tires and get something a little bigger.

Before: Front 36.5" Rear 39"


After: Front 38" with Bilstein 5100 at 2.1, Rear 39.25" with Airlift1000 at 5 psi

Good job!

Looks good.

I too like the ride better than stock and plan to do the rears.

I have a slight funding issue at the moment.


Enjoy your ride.

Great lookin truck agroman! I went with the 5100's all the way around and I tell you, the ride is sooooo much more improved. I have the 1000's in the back as well for them towing days and they work perfectly.

Looks great. Weird how every truck is different. Mine is 39.5 front and 40 back. Just did it today and got alignment. Wow, unbelievable ride. Feels great no vibration.
