    Hey where can I find install instructions for 1st gen bilstein 5100s? I'm sure that there are some on this site somewhere but all I could find find were fabtech, tuff contry, etc. lifts.

    Thanks in advance :)

    5100's install just like any shock. If you type in 5100 install in the search you will find tons of info. They took me about 3hours to put on.

    Take the fronts to a tire shop to have the springs removed and swaped if you are not familiar with them, take off tires, un-bolt sway bar link, take off single bottom bolt, then the three little ones on top, they should drop out. DO NOT TOUCH THE BIG CENTER NUT! you can lose teeth on that one! Rear are a peice of cake, two bolts drop em out.
