Setting for Bilstein 5100's

Should I set the new struts at .85 or 1.75? I only want to level the front with the back and maintain stock ride quality .

I've got a set on the way and plan on the 1.75" setting.

I may add a leaf after to keep some rake. I have a topper which adds weight to the rear, and I pull a boat often. Plan to asess after I do the front to see if I need the AAL.

Just measure now and see how much you need to boost the front for level.

No AAL or TSB at this point. Dealer has refused to do TSB due to out of warranty
