Re: front lift to level

This is the way i will be going, I need shocks soon and will put lift springs on later. I like that it lets you have options.

Bilstein Adjustable 5100 struts

Rusty's makes spacers that will level you out also... only cost $29

Re: front lift to level

I'd go the Holstein 5100 route and call it a day- gives you the option later on down the road to adjust them to 2" and run a spacer in the rear for a full 2" lift.

I agree with the Bilstein 5100's. Good struts and they are adjustable so you can choose to go higher if you ever want to. You could go the Rusty's route (it's cheaper) but you will suffer some ride quality.

Re: front lift to level

Umm... How much lift do you want? As I recall the rear sits 3/4" higher. A new set of bilstein struts will lift the front 3/8" alone. Add new isolators that arn't compressed like the old ones and you're almost level.
