Default Bilstein 5100 front leveling shocks

I have purchased a set of Bilstein 5100 series shocks to level the front, and am undecided on which setting to go with. I know I don't want the highest setting. (1=.60" - 2=1.25" - 3=2")
Does anyone have pics they can posts of their ride with Bilstein's at these settings? Any pics are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Does anyone have pics of your truck with the Bilstein 5100 shocks installed without any other kind of lift kit? Shocks sitting in the corner of the garage waiting on me to decided which setting I want is killing me ! Please post pics.

Use the full 2 inches & it'll be perfectly level. Hope you bought 5100's for the rear too, totally changes the ride. Well worth it!!!

Bought them here:

Didn't want to run spacers either....too much loss of down travel.

Eshocks & Jackit.com both have them, look on the Bilstein site at the list of distributors & start calling around to see who has them in stock.

What exactly do you want pics of? There's no rubbing in the front, i used 1'' spacers to get the 35's away from the control arm.

Will be running stock 20's. Just wanted a closer look to make sure front didn't appear to be higher. Looks good...Nice ride!

After reading through all the threads, and getting feedback from other members; I think I will be setting the Bilstein's on the 1st setting (.60"). Will post pics when complete.
