New Bilstein 5100's with tires/wheels w/pics

Last week I got new tires/wheels. 265/70/16 General Grabber AT2, Eagle Alloy 185 wheels 16x8. I ordered new Bilstein 5100 shocks front/rear(Downsouth Motorsports). The fronts being the adjustable ones.

I got the shocks installed on Friday and had the fronts set at number 2 position (.85). I dont have the TSB done.

Original measurements w/o 5100 shocks- 34 1/2 " on the front, 36 1/2 " rear.

After measurement, 35 1/2" on front, same 36 1/2" rear.

Close to level. If you had thought about getting thses shocks,,GET THEM!!! the ride is superior compared to stock.

Wheels

It is real close on the caliper, but there was no binding or rubbing. Good to go.

I will tell you that having those 16x8 wheels on a beefy tire, my tires rubbed just a tad on the front mud flap at full lock going up my driveway,which is at an incline.

The Bilsteins fixed that. No issues at all.
