Re: Bilstein HDs W/ 5100s

yea theyre good for a 0"-1.5" lift. meaning if you install a lift you can run them with a 1.5" or so lift, or at stock height.. 0". the rears are NOT adjustable.

Re: Bilstein HDs W/ 5100s

you should be able to go 245/75, 255/70, 265/65.. or 245/70 for alittle smaller, but theyll look great.

ill be going 245/75 with a set of wheel spacers
