works fine for me.

however (I hate steering away from DSM), they dont have the spacers iirc...the closest is the trim packer deal for OME.

check toytec for the lean spacer.............warning tho, shipping will cost just about as much as the spacer from toytec

no

thats as close as dsm comes to a spacer IIRC............. They dont promote spacers or blocks for a reason and I respect that fully.


the trim packer is for the OME struts.

I had to order the lean spacer from toytec, but everything else is from DSM...u cant beat their prices or customer service......free shipping is an added bonus

thanks Sonny and Micah!

Thanks. I agree. DSM has been very helpful. I wish I knew about the trim pack before I mix matched.
Can the trim pack be modified for billies?

Everyone has an opinion on ride quality, as everyone drives on different roads and has a different style of driving..
You could set the strut at the 7/8 setting gaining the 7/8 of lift and not effecting the ride and see if you like it, if you want to level it, I would recommend you setting it at the 1.75 setting and driving it to see if you like the way it feels.
Either way you are getting a better shock, but now trucks are built to ride like cars, so its just going to be a trial type of deal to see what you like best.

I have a 2013 DC with a stock rear 3 leaf pack. I am looking for the exact Bilstein 5100's and any other parts or pieces I may need to install these. I read that they do not come with stem bushings? And something about a spacer needed? Not sure if that is true. All and any help in this matter is greatly appreciated. I just want to level out the front of the truck. Price for the 2 shcoks and misc parts needed. Thanks !!

I have a 2010 TRD Offroad with no TSB in the rear. I want to get a lift, no more than 3" for sure, 2.5 would be ideal because I don't have to get UCA.

I like the adjustability of the Bilstein but at the same time I'm concern that if I use the top perch in the Bilstein for maximum height I could be affecting handling due to the limited travel of the shock with the higher setting. I have read a lot about this set up but I havent found anything that answer this. I also like the OME but it seems to put me right at 3" which could mean UCA.

For the rear, should I have an AAL? Or get a leaf pack? 2.5" to 3" leveled would be mu ideal set up.

My driving style in 90% FWY with some dirt fireroad once in a while.

Soo manu combinations of spring selection that make this suspension selection process difficult.
