Bilstein Height Adjustable Front shocks

How do you ppl feel about these shocks? what can you tell me about them.
Does anyone know if you can put these on yourself?

Those are the #1 thing I recommend the most suspension wise. They look great, handle well, and are cost effective.

Your gonna need a spring compressor to install. Otherwise it shouldn't be that hard. I have not done much on my own auto wise but I'll be installing mine when I get them.

But if you haven't worked with a spring compressor before, I'd let a shop install the front shocks/struts on the coil for you. The rears are simple remove and replace procedure.

Yeah those are the shit for our trucks i have them all around and thats one of the best mods i have done, it can be done in your drive way but like humanoid said let a shop do the compressing for you and you do the rest.

Why would you need a diff drop for only 1.75"?

Well, at 1.75" for the front you'll be more than safe, anything over 3" for the front and you'll definitely need a diff drop. Just curious, do you need to cut your crossmember for your diff drop?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
