I've been so busy at work that I haven't had a chance to install them yet. Still riding around on the blowout factory shocks lol SO BAD.

Hopefully within the next 2 weeks I'll have them in and I will let you know. I'm expecting a great ride from past experience with Bilsteins. I also got the SRT rear sway bar and end links so I'll be adding that as well when I do the install.

Install is not that bad once you get in there.

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Check here for good details on the install for the headlights

how to install hid on laredo! ?

The fogs you just need to turn the wheels in and pull the fender liner back after you remove the 2 plastic rivets by hammering a small punch or screwdriver through the center. They are not reusable you have to get a automotive riveter tool from harbor frieght for a few bucks (under 10) that comes with the rivets to seal the fender liner back up when you are done very simple with the tool .

The fog bulbs can be done without removing any rivets or panels. All you need is a drop cloth or moving blanket and to turn the wheel inwards (depending on the side you start with). Get on your side next to the fender and front wheel. Find the opening at the bottom of the fender/lower front facia. Reach into the fender and you will feel the connector on the back of the bulb. There are two tabs that need to be "un clipped" after that's done twist the bulb counter clockwise and it will fall out. Now install the new bulbs in the reverse order.

It should only take 5 minutes to do both fog bulbs.

Hey, did you install these shocks already?
Did it help with the rubbing?

They will, I never used to rub until my factory shocks blew out.

But I haven't had time so busy at work lately I only have 3 days off this month (no weekends off either). :slap fight:

Most likely won't have them in until july

How did the OEM shocks blow out so fast? You only lowered the truck like 3 months ago? These are also the mid-drop right? lol

I was planning on lowering mine next month but I don't want to go crazy with ordering shocks and springs. Are you driving this daily in NYC?

Re: * Skunkd's 2015 White GC Altitude *

Talk to everyone without an srt on road magnets , their rear shocks blow out within a few months. These are the mids too I couldn't imagine aggressives lasting more then a few weeks with the stock shocks.


You need to remember road magnets are designed for the SRT factory bilstein dampers which are already sitting one inch shorter than non srt's and a way more heavy duty shock.

Just normal around town driving not even city driving to be honest

Putting them on with the crap factory tokicos is a great ride at first but now it's so bouncy you can get sea sick driving around. You definitely need aftermarket shocks when doing the switch to road magnets on a non srt wk2. I would also suggest the rear SRT sway bar and end links while ur at it because it's a really simple upgrade to reduce the body roll we have from the factory.


Hopefully these new bilstiens which are much more heavy duty monotube shocks versus the factory two tube will solve this problem. Because having to do the install twice to change out shocks now is a pain in the ass. You can tell just looking at them how much stronger and better build quality they have.

The other option is the eibach prokit dampers
