    Do bilsteins set at 1.75 in the front cause damage to the front suspension? I have heared of it causing bearing damage and front differential damage.

    It causes the CV joints to operate at a different angle and could potentially cause them to wear out quicker. With that small of a lift, you shouldn't run into any real issues but the risk is always there whenever you modify your stock suspension.
