BC Bilstein 5100 Install

Two part question....anyone know of a good place to get the install done? Preferably on Vancouver Island but I can drive over if that's not possible.

I have a 2013 with the rear 4 leaf TSB. To level the truck what are the settings for the front and rear 5100's? I don't want much of a lift but I want to take out the front squat....any suggestions?

Set them on 1.75 to level with the rear TSB springs. Can't help ya on the shop part though. Try doing them yourself maybe?

Do it yourself or just take the existing strut and coil off and drive to like Canadian tire or something and get them to disassemble and reassemble with the new shock.

Will these need to be adjusted after the install?

Also, has anyone just done the front and left the rear on the TSB?

Here's the thing though

People always say this stuff " just do it yourself , it's easy "

It's only easy if you are comfortable in your abilities to do it , and some people are not

I think it's easy to frame a hip roof , others may disagree

i dont even know what that means. but im in the same boat. i much rather someone else work on my truck because then i have someone else to blame if shit goes wrong. especially with a daily driver. got my local mechanic to install my lift and then took it to kal tire for an alignment. all said and done i probably should have taken it to toyota.

Get it done at Toyota it's a lot easier to get it covered by warranty if something goes wrong...

Is that the house of Oz?

I expected you to live in Camelot
