Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts. Great price, great quality, great ride.

Fox 2.0 Performance Series Coil-Over IFP. High Price, outstanding quality and ride.

BDS 4" part number 671F with Fox2.0 upgrade. Higher than the other two, outstanding quality and ride. Highest price of the group. Full lift setup.


These are just my 3 recommendations.

As far as leveling goes I would agree with the Bilstein 5100s up front.
As far as a suspension lift, I would highly reccomend Zone. Under the same company as BDS and is a well made kit for almost half the price.

So going with the 2.8 setting on 5100s what kind of lift would you need for the back to level it off?

I know some people have issues with the 2.8 setting up front and I have seen that upgrading uca's helps that issue. Is there other things that could get damaged or is it just the uca issue?

The 2.8 levels the truck. The 2.1 still has a slight rake, but not as noticeable. Just UCA.

For everyone that has installed the 5100s, does the truck "lower" a bit on the front after an alignment? I just installed them at 2.1 and maybe it is just my eyes but at certain angles the truck is the slightest bit higher up front. Might just be my eyes or the fact that the tire to fender "gap" seems bigger up front than the back now

Update: Well I figured it out. I guess I should of assumed the truck came with a spacer from the dealer but I did not do so. I called back the person that installed my 5100s and asked if they had a spacer in there already and it did...arg I knew I should of asked about that but it slipped my mind and were installed with the spacers. Which is what is making the stance look a bit off

I did mine at 2.1 and it did seem nose high for the first little bit, but now has came back down. But yeah, if you had a spacer in there already then theres your answer!

Now that the 5100s are installed. Besides the advantage of not popping the ball joints, would I be able to feel a difference by adding, for example, some total chaos control arms?
