    If you have a 5 lugger, the only option you have are X-Runner parts.

    Nobody in the Street Trucks forum wants lift.

    If they do, they don't understand English.

    No. They're Bilstein.

    Those are X-Runner parts.

    X-Runners come from the factory with Bilsteins on all 4 corners.
