    Hello Forum,


    RIDE HEIGHT ORIGINALLY:
    with stock suspension
    & 265/70r16:
    LF 34.00 RF 34.25
    LR 35.25 RR 35.50

    RIDE HEIGHT NOW:
    with Billstiens @.85,
    '12 OEM 3/1 leafs,
    Wheelers 3 leaf AAL,
    OEM overload leaf,
    & 265/75r16 BFG A/T's:
    LF 36.00 / RF 36.00
    LR 39.00 / RR 39.00

    RIDE HEIGHT (hub to fender)
    LF 21.25 / RF 21.25
    LR 24.25 / RR 24.25

    OEM STEEL WHEEL:
    Dimensions:: 16" x 7" with chrome wheel skins.

    FYI, I replaced my original 2/1 pack with these 3/1 leafs. It came off a 2012 with 5K miles on them. It took 2 days of rough driving for them to settle and they have been at this height ever since. Very slight shudder between 12 & 22 but it's been like that for a while and no issues.

    Thanks

    With the 6112's set on the 3rd setting and the full Dakar leaf pack do you think this would have the factory rake to it? I am still trying to decide on the 3rd or 4th notch.
    My truck is equipped very similar. Thanks

    I would say yes. I forgot to take before measurements. :anonymous: That would have told us what we really need to know.
    From the looks of it, right now the front is an inch lower than the rear. I am thinking the rear is going settle out a bit more than the front. Just a gut feeling.
    Was thinking about if I needed to switch out the setting and how much of a pita it would be. I think it may be easier to go from high to low than the other way. Not sure if there is a way to do it without having to rip it all apart and get it back on a compressor and all. :rolleyes:
    Think there has to be a redneck way of doing it.

    Keep me posted up with your results/findings.

    Thanks....I've been talking with a company who sells the 6112's and they are saying, from the feedback they've got from their customers, that people are getting more lift than indicated on the Bilstein lift chart. I really don't want to put in on the wrong notch and have to go it and change things. I will eventually be adding a Pelfreybilt steel bumper and am undecided whether I'll need upgraded springs for the extra weight.

    I will update this thread once things are done....pending I remember to measure.

    I got a chance to work the new suspension yesterday a bit.
    Gotta say....everything is great. The truck now feels its best the rougher the road gets.
    IMO, if you are getting a plate bumper go with the 4th to start with. That will be quite a bit of weight on there and I think it will put you were you will want to be.
    Looking at my front end out on some roads yesterday, I am wondering if my superbumps are too long and not giving the front coils enough travel. Will have to talk with Dan from Wheeler's on that.
    I think you will be very happy with the 6112s. They are a very well built, well thought out shock.

    Going to PM you - trying to keep the BS to a minimum in this thread.
