Default bilsteins?

hello i have a 2008 dodge ram with a 6 inch rcx lift, i have a shock out in the drivers side front. I am gonna buy bilsteins for the two fronts? I have the shocks that came with my lift there about a 1 1/2 old. Do i need to replace all four or just the front should be fine? Also i was online looking and there seems to be a bunch to choose from. Was wondering which size bilsteins to go with? thanks for any help

You should be fine with just replacing the two fronts. Id check the condition of your rears before you order though. Pull the rears out, and they should be fairly hard to compress, you should have to put some body weight into it. But if the rears are fine, then you will be fine replacing just the fronts. You should definitely go with the Bilstein 5100 series height adjustable front shocks. They ride great, AND if you set them to the highest setting, you can get an extra 2" of lift out of your front end on top of your 6" lift (if your looking to go bigger)

yes there are adjustable ones for your truck. I have the same ones and used them to level mine.

I would contact Andrew or Jeremiah at Bullys they will get you set up with exactly what you need and probably the lowest price you can find.
