Hello,

I tried to be as specific as possible in the title. I'm getting my rear TSB done and it will definitely be higher now so I'll need to raise the front. Can I change the setting from 1.75" to 2.5" on the front Bilsteins without removing the whole assembly from the truck? That sure would save me time and money! Thanks in advance.

Rob

No, you have to remove the whole assembly and have them set higher

Damn! I thought it could be easier than that, oh well, looks like a quick trip to swap them out is in order, at least the TSB is free!

Thanks for the replies folks, I really appreciate it!
