Sweet. Figured it would be quick to put another groove in there.

Yeah wasnt bad at all. 20 minutes.

I drove it today, holy crap these 5100s are great. I love the ride now. Maybe the spacers just made it that much worse, not sure but I think I need the back two now. LOL

I cant imagine my stock shocks were shot at 40,000 miles but it liked to float some, now it absorbs the bumps so much better than before in the front.

What type of leveling kit did you have before, strut spacers like these?

That's surprising then, those style ones don't make it stiffer so maybe your old shocks were just shot or maybe the Bilsteins are just that much better.

It's too bad no one makes a shock replacement like that with a threaded body. A cheaper alternative than a real coil-over replacement.

I would make a sleeve to go over the 5100s. that sleeve would be threaded. that would be pretty slick but you could just take the 5100s and add several groves on it for adjustment.
