Thanks everyone. I ordered my front Blistein 5100's today for my 2011 Ram 1500 QC Big Horn from www.shockwarehouse.com
Order Details Qty Product Price Extended 2F4-BE5-F812-H0 Bilstein 5100 Offroad Racing Dodge Ram Leveling Unit
Item: F4-BE5-F812-H0

$108.31$216.62 Sub Total$216.62 Shipping (Ground)$0.00 Invoice Total$216.62

I just want to level things out, but I'm also installing a Westin HDX heavy duty brush guard which has a shipping weight of 105lbs. Any idea what setting I should set my shocks to before installation by my dealer?

I would set them all the way up at 2.8". That's where I set mine and it sits pretty level. I don't think the brush guard will lower it much if at all.

It is a bit confusing. The box and Bilstein say up to 2.75. People refer to it as 2.8 which is correct rounded off. To be specific I have them set all of the way up which would be what others refer to 2.8. Sorry for any confusion.
