    this has probably been said before but I am curious why bilstein 5100's do not fit on the 5 lugs

    most likely. im not sure how long yalls struts are but if they are over 3 in longer they are to big. also you would need the springs off of a 6 lug to use with the 5100s im pretty sure. dont quote me on any of this...

    1st gen 5 lugs dont have struts they have coils

    ive heard of guys using 5100's from tahoes and siverado 1500s wit some fab work but not sure if they will bottom out with our suspensions. id do some research on that or ask them the results
