Default Front End Lift

Hello All,
I am looking to gain 2-3 inches in the front but am looking to also improve my rides performance and durability. I was looking for some good ideas for just a front end suspension lift if something like this exists. I am not too familiar with the different options available other than a full lift and leveling kit strut spacers and not sure if either of these are what I am looking for. Is there a kit for this or would it be worth my while to piece this together?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Welcome to the forum! Bilstein 5100 adjustable heighth shocks is what you are looking for. They give you lift adjustability and a better ride.

Here's a link for some info: http://www.bilsteinus.com/products/l...djustable.html

I put them on my truck (same year and model as yours) and I love them.

Here's a picture of it after installing them:

Looks really good sir that is exactly what I am looking for. I was looking at the Rancho quickLifts but they only give 1 inch and I was looking for a bit more.

Your than man thank you,

Thanks! I ordered mine from here: http://www.truckspring.com/suspensio...5-E523-H0.aspx

Was the best price I could find at the time and had free shipping.

5100 is the best option for an 06-08, no doubt

What do you think about throwing in some new softride springs and sway bars in the front on top of the Bilsteins? I was gonna do a lift kit so now I have extra cash burning a hole in my pocked
