Just the front. I'll get around to the back soon. I should be able to handle the rear ones myself.

The stance looks great h20man! I am hoping to do the same thing to my truck using the Bilstein's. Did you end up having a Wheel Alignment done after the Bilstein's were installed?

Thanks

Did you only put the Bilstein 5100s in the front to level the RAM? How hard was it to install them? I want to add some additional clearance in the front for off road use because I have 20in tires and wheels.

Yes. Only the front. My level of wrenchness means that I had to have them installed by pros mostly due to the fact the the coils have to be compressed and as manly as I am I can't do that. The rears will be another story. They will be very easy to install.

Here's what they look like.
