Haven't looked much into the billsteins, I go look now but what things can I expect from shock upgrades.. Besides the obvious.

Fabtech 4WD Ford, Fabtech Suspension Lift Kits for 4WD Ford, Fabtech Lift Kits, Offering All Fabtech 4WD Ford Suspension Lift Kits.

I'm really liking that kit ^^^

What you guys think? Does the AAL that comes with the kit cause a stiffer ride? I was reading somewhere that you need to have a big load in the truck for it to ride normal?

The kit above also comes with "performance shocks" which I hope someone can clue me in on how good or bad those are.. Is this kit worth the money??

Does anyone know if the 3" spindle and shackle lift will allow me to put my valence back on? Imtried put the fog valence on after I got my tires and way to much trimming would of needed to be done. I also rub at full lock and somtimes turning at weird angles, anyones know if this suspension lift will fix that.. Hence that's why I want a suspension lift

procomp makes some awesome shocks!
and yes you can put your valence back on! haha

to the aal- yes its stiffer than a block but i really dont think it will be too noticable. lets face it when our beds are empty the a$$ end likes to jump a bit to begin with

also the fabtech shocks that come with the kit are pretty stiff. procomps will definitely be a bit softer so it might just counteract the aal anyways haha

Haha thank you Guys for the responses! I think omorrow
I'm gonna buy the kit.

Can't wait to finally put my valence back on haha! And my opinion is the 285/75/16s work but they look too stuffed. Not sure if you guys answered this but will I run at all/ full lock?

Thanks!

Well I'd have to look up to see what my offset was again but when the wheels were installed they were just about even with the edge of wheel well. I put 1.5" wheel spacers on the front and now rub on the wheel well at full lock.

hey guys i got another question for you all. I decided not to go with a suspension lift kit, i want it to be more tailored to fit my needs. My question is about shocks, i really really want to go with the bilstein 5100's, id rather drop the extra money now then have to replace the shocks in a few years. what do you guys think of the 5100's? Also could i survive with just the front shocks, or do i need front and rear?

On summit racing it says "application" 4"/ 4.5" in front.. Does this mean i need that much height for these shocks to work?

thanks

Hey,

Been looking online at shocks for the past few nights to buy some for my 3" spindle lift. I know I want the bilstein 5100s but I can't seem to find any shocks with 3 inch of lift on any website.. I've looked A ton and found nothing, I don't wan to purchase these shocks and have them act as a bumpstop, or order the wrong ones. If someone would be so kind to post the product number or links to the correct shocks that'd be great!
