Bilstiens with more lift

If I install the bilstien 5100s and later on decide i want another inch on the front what are my options? 1" Spacer w the 5100s?

I know on the back supposevely the bilstiens give 1 inch. I can add an ICON leaf pack on the back to add 1.5 and make that 2.5 to match the front right?

Save the money and do springs and UCA's.

The back 5100's add no lift height. You will have to add the AAL to get the height. Also, putting a 1" spacer with the front 5100's is a no go. You shouldn't be lifting a 4x4 more then 3" in the front.

This will turn your 5100 into a coilover



It goes for $429 minus the TW discount

Drop bracket lifts like the Fabtech and Pro Comp 6" lifts are a very different design. A more accurate statement would have been "You shouldn't be lifting a 4x4 more than 3" in the front unless you cut out the stock front diff crossmember support and replace it with a drop bracket kit."

About all you can do after the billys are at 2.5 is a 1/2" top plate spacer. You can't go much over 3" without a drop bracket lift.

You would also likely need UCA's with anything over 2.5"
