I just got back form my buddy's shop doing all 4 bilsteins..AWESOME...and no vibration in 4x4. i wish i could find the thread someone had started where he figured the bilsteins caused no vibration once you had the tie rod recall done.

Prior to doing the bilstein's. I had the recall done and i have no vibration after install in 4x4. I used the 2.1 lift, but honestly, i think i could have squeezed the 2.8...too much work to change it now!!! But it rides like a different truck..actually more like a truck, but in a good way!

Come tax refund time I'll be installing the Bilstein's and larger tires. Just curious what was needed to do the install at home. I've got spring compressors, jack stands, floor jack, etc, etc. Am I missing anything?

Musclemckeester, Quick question for you on your lift set up. Other than your Bilsteins up front, is your ProComp lift as is straight out of the box? Meaning do you just have just the lift blocks in the rear(and associated control arms) and the larger coils and spindles up front? Candy)* alluded to the fact that some people may have some additional spacers in there.

The reason I ask is that I want to add the Bilsteins on mine at max hieght but worried that based on how my truck sits now that I may end up a bit nose high. I was thinking that if this ends up being the case, in stead of disassemblying hte front to adjust the strut setting that I coudl just add some short spacers inthe rear to compensate. Any thoughts? Thanks

My experience was that the bilsteins did not lift it enough to be level. I still have about 1/2-to-3/4" rake in front and wish I could have gone higher. Otherwise a perfect kit. If you have the kit installed and it goes beyond level, I think you will be the first person to report that. (That I've seen anyway).

I just ordered my Bilsteins for the front and 1-1/5" spacers for the rear. I plan on installing myself and plan on documenting the install.

For those of you who have already done this install, did you need to get an alignment afterwards? Thanks.
