    I have the Bilsteins and 5 leaf pack. I have already asked and been told not to use the spacer on the front strut. My truck is an 04 DC. My questions are what should the shock settings be with the 5 leaf pack. and how do you adjust the rear shocks. I do not do any off roading. I had intended to run the shocks on the middle setting, 1.75. Does this sound OK ? I see where the ring groove is on the front, but don't know by looking at the rear shocks how they adjust. Thanks again for the help. I want to get it right the first time and then have it aligned.

    The rear shocks aren't adjustable. They have enough travel to work with the 5-leaf. And yes, don't use a spacer on the front, adjust the shock to achieve the lift.
