Hi there. I want to replace all 4 of my stock shocks on my 2005 Ram 1500 4x4 Quad Cab with a set of Bilstein 5100's. I looked on the Bilstein site and it said that the 5100's would only work for the rear, and I would have to use 4600's for the front. I want the adjustable 5100's for the front, but now I'm not sure if they'll fit on my truck. Does anyone have them on theirs?


Also, the rake right now is 1" (roughly), so setting the adjustables to level out the truck, what size tire could I fit?


Last, I would ideally like to get some 35's, and if the shocks can't get the necessary height, what 4" lift or less would you guys recommend? And what all terrain tires?

Lots of questions I know, but I'm just trying to plan out my next few months of spending.

Thanks.

The 5100's only work on the 06-up truck because prior to that the trucks had torsion bars.

Ya the 5100's are designed for coil spring front suspensions.
