Bilstein's for 16 75th

So it is my understanding that the Bilstein for the 11-15 will not fit on the 16 in the front but the rear shocks will fit on the 16. I have a hellwig rear swaybar that I ordered for 15 that I didn't put on yet. Should I put the rear shocks and the swaybar on or should I just do the swaybar until the fronts come out. Do you think just putting rear shocks on will cause more of a pronounced rake?

I'd install both, if you ordered the same size shocks as OEM it shouldn't affect the rake at all. Especially on a newer vehicle, you would only have a rake if your front shocks were worn out I would think?

Re: Bilstein's for 16 75th

I added Bilstein's just in the rear to replace the Nivomat shocks and it dropped the ground to fender measurement 1". If you're just doing a straight swap id go ahead with the rears. You might be happy with how it drives and not need to do the fronts.

Re: Bilstein's for 16 75th

My 16 doesn't have tow package. I may just both and when the fronts come out add those. I know the suspension changed on the 16 but does anyone know why the front Bilstein's will not fit on the 16's
