bilstein 5100 leveling

  1. 2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    2014 Ram 1500 stock shocks need help sagging in the rear with 3500# trailer. I would like to put the 5100 shocks all around on my Ram. I also have an enclosed trailer I will be towing occasional (1500# empty). The description says they are adjustable and are for 0-1.75" lift. Anyone have put...

    Hi all, new member here. I've decided to purchase Bilstein B8 5100's to level out my 1500 4X4, and I don't know if I can get away with only purchasing the new shocks for the front end of my truck, or if it is necessary to buy a rear set as well. All input is appreciated!

    Zone UCA's for Pre-13 Ram I have an 09 Ram with the Bilsteins riding at factory settings. Long story short I have had enough of the factory settings and plan to raise it up. Question for you that my searching hasn't uncovered. While I know the Zone UCA's fix the ball joint issues...

    I'm hoping someone or several someone's can help me out deciding on my Bilstein 5100 setting. I have a 2013 Sport Crew Cab, with stock 20" wheels, tires, and suspension. I have purchased the Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts for the front, Bilstein 5100 struts for the rear, and 1" coil spacers...

    I will have to resize the pictures before I post them on here but this was a NGHTMARE! I finally order a set of Bilstein 5100's so I could get a 2" lift up front and benefit from a little better ride quality. This was my little teaser for myself until I save up for a 6" lift. We rent a spring...

    Here's some pix of my Leveled 2011 Ram 1500 Sport with Bilstein 5100's set at 2.8. Slight vibration when accelerating fast in 4wd (which will be never). Drives fine under normal conditions. Also just put on 35x12.5x20 Trail Grapplers with 20x9 Fuel Pumps with +1 Offset (More pics in the Wheels...

    Hello all, I just purchased a set of Bilstein Ride Height Adjustable's for my 2013 RAM 1500 4x4 Crew Cab. I lack the tools, courage (don't want to be killed by a spring) and the expertise (other than my K&N CAI, I haven't done any work on my truck) to install them myself. I work nights and I...

    I'm putting bilstein 5100's in the front on my 2014 ram 1500 express single cab short box, I'm thinking of setting them at 2.1" maybe 2.8" I'm not sure yet. I'm going to run 17x9 rims with -6mm offset. What would be the biggest tire I can run at 2.1" and the biggest if I set them too 2.8"?

    I drive an 08 Hemi 2WD, can't find anywhere online that possibly the Bilstien BIL24-186988 would fit on my 2WD. If they don't fit, do you guys have any other suggestions. I just want the front to sit level as like most of us, I can't stand the forward rake. Any help is appreciated!

    I am looking for some Bilstein 5100 shocks to bring the front of my truck up a bit. Its a 2008 and i was wondering if anyone had a part number for the shock they have on a 3rd gen truck. I went to shockwarehouse.com and i found shocks with this number: F4-BE5-E523-H0. I really just want to...

    I really need to know if any 4th gen owners out there have experienced vibration or wobble with only a 2" front lift? I am getting my Bilstein 5100's installed tomorrow and am still on the fence about whether to go with the 1.4" or 2.1" setting for the lift. I am really timid now after reading...
