Bilstein 5100's in front, is that all i need for 2.5" lift?

So ive been looking into a lift, and im gonna go for a 2.5" lift so i can fit some 33's. I heard spacers ride like crap, and the bilsteins can adjust to provide 2.5" of lift.

My question is: Do I need to purchase anything else besides the 5100's for the FRONT end?

also what should i do for the rear (inexpensive)? ive heard shackles are the best

thanks for the help!

Dude, you had better do some searching before you throw out what is probably THE most asked question. There are tons of threads and you're gonna get flamed hardcore

it's fun to search for my question and always have it deferred to another post. I guess i should only look at threads from 2005
