    I just got Bilstein 5100's installed on the front end and there was no difference int he height even though I was asured there would be. Even if there had been a differenceI still want a bigger lift. I am on a budget and I am not into hardcore off roading, just getting into it actually? Any suggestions?

    the front 5100's provide lift depending on where the coil sits on the coil perch. There are rings on the 5100's that allow you to change the coil perch position;

    did you leave them at the lowest "stock" setting? if you did you will not see any lift

    I'm also assuming you did not buy lift coils.

    take it back to the shop and have them change the settings. It will require compressing your coils.




    when I'm not BSing, I'm actually helping people!

    i never went anywhere...I live here....:D

    I think a good 1/3 of my posts are about 5100's, tire sizes, KM2's, and lifts..
    or not, but still
