Re: gsommerp - 2015 Ecodiesel OEM+ Build Thread

I've been through my suspension many times now. Initial install was SRT coils all the way around, swapped out rear leveling shocks with OEM shocks. Then after that I pulled rear coils and installed airlift bags in the rear coils. Now I decided it is too bouncy with OEM shocks and OEM SRT Coils. So I pulled everything out again, and installed the Bilstein struts and shocks. About 6 hours of work for me alone. Not bad. I thought it would be a little stiffer, but it does ride nice, not so bouncy. The stance has changed a bit, the front always comes up with these. Here is a side view.

Re: gsommerp - 2015 Ecodiesel OEM+ Build Thread

Latest update.

22x10.5 ET35 Gunmetal Velgen VMB5 w/ Toyo Proxes ST II 285/40/22. Drives a little firmer than OEM Goliaths and 295/45/20s. But overall, feels good.

Should I bring back some chrome trim, or leave it all black>
