Installed the Bilstein 5100s
 
Hello Guys :Hey:

I just got my Bilstein 5100s installed today. I have to say that they are awesome!!! I do not feel the bumps in the road like before. It feels like I am riding on a cloud, they are so smooth. I can not explain how much I love these shocks.

I did not think they would be this good. I LOVE THEM!!!!!! haha. If anyone is looking to buy shocks, go get these!!! Man o man they are good!

I also used them to raise the front of my truck. I took out my leveling kit and am selling it now. I have it in the sale section of the forum. The leveling kit is 2" and so are these shocks, that is why I am getting rid of them

I posted an image off the internet, it does not go anywhere, I think. I did not take pictures of them before I got them instaled since they were sitting in the shop. This is what they look like. I will get a back shot to show you them on the truck.

So they made that much of a differance.. Also did you ever get your sway bar installed ?
Curious about that mod..

I tried to order the sway bar and they said they dont ship to Canada, or I would have to pay a lot more. I decided to hold off on that for a little since I just installed these. After what I saw with adding these shocks it makes me want to finish off the suspension

I'm thrilled to hear the good report!

I'm waiting for them to get back in stock and I'm going to pick up a set as well. Who did you order them from?

Pics of shocks!
 
Hey Guys!

I finally got the pics of the shocks installed.

If you see one of the pics it show the grooves at which the spring assembly sits on. The rear shocks took about an hour to install. The fronts took about 3hrs to install. I took it to my shop to get done since I am not that mechanically knowledgeable haha
