2011 Ram 1500 4X4 LH: 6" BDS Suspension lift with Dual front stabilizers and Fox 3" rear shock. I plan on installing my adjustable bilsteins up front. My installer says I dont need to jack up the Bilsteins since the BDS kit comes with front blocks.
Do I skip the blocks and use the adjustability on the Bilsteins or go the way the installer reccomends? And should I go with the reccomended 3" rear shock or go to the 5"? I have a top-gun customz leveling kit on it now that pushes it 2 3/4" up in the front and 3/4 in the rear but the shocks are starting to sag and I cant get an accurate OE height estimate.
If you run the 3" rear, your truck will be level right from the get go
Maybe requiring Bilateins at 0.7 to fully level it.
5" rear and you'll practically have to max those Bilsteins to be close to level
But this is all dependent on your current rake
As for the strut spacer, that stays on.
The Pre load is what has to be removed and that's only 5/8"
Did you ever find that email you spoke of?
Either way, let me know
As for going big? Determine your tire size you want to run.
There is no point going so huge if you're only going to run 35's
If you decide of 37's you'll need to factor in your gearing.
3.55 + 37's = shoot yourself, as its a dog
I know. I ran that way for 1 week before I dropped it off to get gears done....lol
