    Hi guys I might buy the 5100 Billys since they get pretty good reviews. Right know I have Bilstein HD there are like new but I want to try 5100 would the ride quality be better? Also I call DSM and they advised me to get the 5100/5125 combo since my truck is stock is this correct setup or can I do 5100 all around I dont plan in lifting the truck, maybe later in the future would replace the leafs but with the stock heigth leaf. What do you all think please let me know.

    Didn't you started the same thread months ago? And then decided not to do the 5100's? :notsure:


    For the record, not only did I also posted on that other thread, I did the install two days ago.


    Those 5100's are amazing shocks/struts for the money.

    cool what about the ride quality and shock absortion would it be better with the 5100/5125 than with the 4600 HD that I currently have or would it be about the same?
