Bilsteins finally arrived.

As you all know I was having some difficulty in getting my Bilstein 5100's delivered. I ordered them 2 weeks ago and they finally arrived. What a pretty sight they are. Here is my question. I currently have a 2.5" spacer lift on the front, should I leave it and just set the Bilsteins to a stock height or remove the spacer and set the Bilsteins to 2.5"?? How durable are they? I don't do a lot of off-roading but I do some. I would hate to ruin them and then have to put the spacers back on. Advice?? Oh, my truck doesn't seem to ride rougher with the spacers on, so that isn't an issue. I am strictly concerned with suspension longevity and use.


Maybe I should set them at 2.5" and leave the spacers too! I mean 5" would love awesome, right? I am kidding, that is too much lift for me.
