My neighbor and I did the rears last night and it was not too bad to do. We are doing the fronts tomorrow, and I should have pics right after. The fronts are going to take quite a bit longer, and I have to go rent the spring compressor tool too.

I'm super excited to see the after pics. I am ordering this exact shock setup in two weeks and then also doing 33x12.5's on stock 20's. I can't wait to see what it will look like when you're done. Thanks for the updates! Anybody know what just a 2" body lift would look like with this Bilstein leveling combo and 33x13.5x20's?

So if I understand this correctly, you're looking for pictures of a 4" lift? 2" Bilstein leveling + 2" body lift, right? I can post a picture, but the tires are 35's, not 33's.

That would be great. I would appreciate seeing a 4" lift with 35's, it will help me get an idea of what my truck is gonna look like. Would 33x12.5s looks silly with a 5" lift? I've been debating on doing a 4" with 33x12.5 BFG ATZ or a 5" lift with 35"s or a 5" lift with 33x12.5's.

This is just my own personal opinion: If I ever bought a 4" or 5" lift, I would no doubt get 35's. 33's look great on a leveled truck (as pictured on pg. 1 of this thread), but look too small on a lifted truck IMO.

This is a 4" lift on 35's:



This is a 5" lift on 35's:

We got the front drivers side installed last night, but did not have time to do the passenger side. Hoping we get time to finish today, it was a horrible experience getting the old strut out. The bolt on top was seized, and the rod on the old strut snapped at the top. We had to heat the nut several times and it finally came off. I'll try and get a pic up of the drivers side, if I can find a clear spot with all this damn snow.

I was wondering how things were going for you. That's how projects go for me it can go so smooth and then poop something stupid drags out the project hours longer than it should.
