Hey guys.
About 2 and a half years ago i put some bilstein 5100s on my truck at the 2.8 inch mark.

I have Nitto trail grapplers 295/60r20s on the truck also.

I know that messing with the factory angles will cause some trouble down the road and im not trying to start a debate on leveling or not.

Now after about 40,000 miles both of the bilsteins my springs are covered in fluid.

I have replaced the upper control arms about the same time the shocks were installed and its about time they get replaced again.

I have 2 questions for you

1. has anyone ran into this issue with these shocks. (i know everybody on here loves them)

2. I am looking for after market control arms that possibly have serviceable ball joints. I have read about the zone off road uppers and they look very nice and would probably solve my loose front end issue but the price tag is up there. (sometimes you gotta pay to play)

Any input you may have i appreciate.

I will have to look into this. Thanks!

I went back out to the truck yesterday to start making my list of all the parts that need to be replaced and the shock has drained all the fluid out and its on the ground now.

Something is not right.
