    Hey all! Haven't posted in quite a while, and feel a bit like a turd about it. None the less, for anyone still around who talked with me a few years ago, I finally got the 5100's for the front, and set it up! The work was great and valuable as it was my first time working on the suspension for...

    Hello Everyone, I am looking for a little advice of its even a good idea to try to level my Ram 1500 that already has a 6" Pro Comp lift. Off the lot the trick has a small rake that I hoped would get better with the 6" lift but after some months that is not the case. I was wondering how or if...

    Has anyone used the Bilstein coil springs that raise the rear by 1 inch? If so, are they better or worse than stock springs? Firmer or softer? Any input is appreciated.

    Hey everyone, I'm new here, this is my first post. Just got my 18 Ram limited with Air suspension. I had a 14 Sport custom build before. I had a 2" leveling kit in my 14 and am wondering about the implications of installing any kind of lift/level kit on a truck that has a factory air...

    Like most who post, I'd like to go to the local 4 Wheel Parts store and take them up on installing a leveling kit to beef up the front and I would also like to buy some slightly taller & wider tires. From my research the word so far is no; don't do it. It ruins the vehicle in terms of driving...

    So, I'm in a pickle. I bought 285/70/17's and a 2" leveling kit for my 2012 Ram 1500 4wd. Everything was going nice and smooth up until the last bolt. The lower strut bolt is sized to the bushing. I tried hammering, breaker bars, impact gun (even one impact on one end and another on the reverse...

    Hello I recently purchased a 2017 Ram Laramie crew cab. The dealership threw in a set of 275/65r20 BFG k02 tires on the deal. The tires are being put on in a few days. I ordered front and rear 5100s for the truck but after doing research like everyone else I have seen that some people have...

    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...

    So, I just had a new bumper installed. AND I LOVE IT. Previously had the Sport trim bumper, estimated weight of what, 50 lbs at most? I now have a hefty 200-300 pounder, all steel bumper. One thing that was mentioned to me that I had shoved into the back of my mind is what will this do to the...

    Hey folks, So I'm finally establishing the funds to get my 1500 set up. Priority of work right now is tires. Currently in Washington state, but moving to Alaska in a few months, I'm gonna need the tires. What would anyone suggest for a solid, year-round tire that will give me grip on ice, snow...

    Ive got a 2015, Ram Sport 4x4. I did a leveling kit on it using Bilsteins 5100 on 2.8 on the front and 1.5 inch spacers on the rear. This gave me plenty of clearance for my 35s and looked great. Problem is that I have a cap on the rear of my truck now, which increases the weight on the...

    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...

    Hello, First post here. Recently picked up a 2010 1500 Sport crew cab. Just got my Bilstein 5100s in the mail. Originally was going to go straight to 2.1 and leave the rear. Now I'm thinking about going to 2.7 and doing the TG customs .75 or 1.5 in the rear to get the max lift I can out of...

    Hey guys I am starting to do some research on a leveling kit for a 2WD 2011 RAM 1500 SLT Quad Cab. The best one I have found is the Supreme Suspensions Leveling kit. It is a 3 inch front lift and a 1 inch rear lift. Does any one know how hard that is to install? I can get a buddy to help me do...

    I have the bilstein 5100 front adjustable shocks that I am going to have installed tomorrow. I was told that if they were struts I would have to have an alignment done, but since they are shocks it is not necessary. I have also read that after installing the 5100s it is recommended that you get...
