    You have bilstein HD shocks, I believe- these shocks are different from what you have stock.

    The 5100 front struts are adjustable to give up to 2.5 inches of lift, while the 5125's allow for more rear flex. Theyre also valved differently to give a better ride.

    Not these it doesn't. Please consult the FAQ link I posted above.

    Your truck comes with Bilstein HD shocks. Bilstein 5100 shocks are quite a different animal.

    You can but the ride will suffer because the shocks you have are not valved properly to dampen the stiffer spring rates associated with a lift.

    theyre also gonna be too short, so you'll lose downtravel if you plan on wheeling
