    Installed Bilstein 5100, all four corners. Also replaced OEM rear springs with TUfTruck 1211. Ride is much firmer, without being harsh. Feels more "truck" like, if that makes sense. Before,the ride reminded of an old 1970's family wagon cruiser. Too much bounce, not planted on the roadway. OEM...

    Replaced the shock and lower control arm on the passenger side of my truck this past weekend and now the front end sits lower on that side. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
