    Great. I love the Power Wagon. Its ride, power, and suspension are amazing for a HD truck. I even like the 6speed tranny much better than the 8speed that had its own quirks. There really isnt any options my last Laramie had that I miss on my PW. The PW is a completely different animal and it has all the necessary stuff like remote start, etc....

    Your mailbox was full so I couldn't respond to your PM. At least half of your driveway will be the right color now LOL.

    Is it the pearlcoat or clearcoat white? At least you'll still have the full 6.4' box and the extra cab space will be nice

    I'll do it myself end up always doing everything my self. I checked into having a auburn unit installed but the guy was crazy. 750 for the unit and 4 something to put it in. I dint think so, I can buy it under 4.

    I had them installed. Too many components up front for me to want to try my first shock install on my still newish truck. Plus finding time would have been an issue. The rears would have been no problem at all.

    I talked to my dad, and his 2wd is super easy. He doesn't even need a spring compressor.

    I would recommend an alignment any time you get new shocks or springs put on because they will make the truck sit ever so slightly differently from how it did with the old shocks. That especially goes for any lifting/lowering/leveling. I know the double control arm setup we have minimizes camber change throughout the suspension's travel, but it will still change somewhat and it doesn't have to be off by much for an irregular wear pattern to start. Once that happens its pretty much impossible to correct until you get new tires, especially with a more aggressive tread.
    Are you doing the Bilstein 5100s (I presume at 2.1)? What tires are you getting?
    Thunderhorse ·
    Yes, I got an alignment done right after the install. The alignment was also warranted for 6 months/6,000 miles so when I went back for tires a month later and they did an alignment check as part of the tire install. Everything was still within spec, but the camber was a tiny bit off (negative) so I had them zero everything out to make it perfect; it was free so there was no reason not to. I attribute the difference in camber to the shocks settling.
