Thumbs up Need some advice on replacement shocks & struts.

Hey guys hoping you can help me out with a quick question about the BILSTEIN 5100 shocks.

I've read all over that at the lowest setting it still adds .5" of lift to the front suspension.
My current 07' titan has leveling blocks (2.5"front, 1" back) would adding these shocks to the front and back at their lowest setting give me any problems?

Im thinking the front would be at 3" total (ive read that you wont have problems till 4", but prg's site specifically says not to run them with spacers) and to get my back end back to level or slightly up i can set the back shocks to setting 2.

Please let me know if this thinking is correct and if not should i buy 4600 in front and 5100 in back or just 4600 all around.

thank you in advice

On the lowest setting, 5100s should add no lift.

if you don`t wheel your rig hard, 4600`s will do the job superbly with everyday driving.

Re: Need some advice on replacement shocks & struts.

Older model 5100's (pre 2010) would add .5" on the bottom setting they have a black steel spring plate on the bottom. Newer 5100's (post 2010) do not add any height on the bottom setting, these have a silver billet aluminum spring plate on them. I've ran mine for 6 years on the mid setting with a 1.5" spacer for a total of 2.5" of lift, and have had zero problems with them.

Re: Need some advice on replacement shocks & struts.

I remember reading that the 4600's are slightly stiffer than 5100's. The con sensuous was the same for my ex Tundra and my Titan.
