    I Just ordered Front Bilstein 5100's and I think I might be missing something. All they came with was the seat for the springs and 1 lug nut each.

    What all did your Billies come with?

    Doing install tomorrow morning with Chris so all the help we can get would be appreciated. :D

    they should come with a coil seat plate, c-clip for the coil seat to rest on, two rubber bushings, a washer, and a nut. you reuse the centering washer underneath the coilover top plate from your stock shocks.

    i was just looking at pics on downsouthmotorsports and all the bushings, washers, etc are pictured underneath the rear shocks and the coil seat plate and upper mount nut are next to the front shocks. i wonder if what you got is correct after all??? Though, why you wouldn't get new "bushings" for under and above the coilover top plate i dont know.

    Sounds like you may be missing some thing, Colton. Check all the boxes they came in, and make sure the parts are there. Give me a call tomarrow morning, and let me know if you have everything.
