ebay...Downsouth Motorsports...Bilstein 5100's all the way around, front set to 1.75. I paid $300 to my door...their listed at 269 on the web plus shipping. I've read others paying up to 40 bucks less by making an offer. I'm not that patient.

What are you leveling from?

Did you get the leaf spring TSB done? Give it time to settle.....
The best thing you can do is put 200lbs in the bed and drive around for a couple months. That'll settle the springs out nicely.

Just thought I'd mention that.

It all depends on what you are looking for. I got a leveling kit from toytec for under $300 with shipping. That included the front coil overs, AAL's and all necessary hardware. I also got 5100's all around for around $250 with shipping for a better ride then the stocks. Then I got some total chaos UCA's. You don't want to know what I paid for those though!!! Those aren't a must, just if you want your alignment to be right. I have pic's of my setup in my gallery if you want to have a peek.

Yeah when I first started getting into lifting my truck I thought maybe the Bilsteins that came with the truck were the 5100's, but our luck ain't that good. So yeah, you got to buy them from some where.

Don't do the Best Offer. Do the live.com deal with eBay. Price after rebate for all four is $195 shipped. The only catch is you have to wait 60 days to get the rebate, you must use Paypal to pay, and you must purchase with Buy-It-Now. See the thread for details on setting it up.

For some reason the 96-04 Model Bilstien 5100's are more money than the 05 and newer by $30.00 or so...? I never understood why tho- You got a good deal, it just was the model year difference...

Thanks for the comment!

Its the customer service that keeps us afloat! - The good prices dont hurt either!
