I would like try to install new shocks front and rear and have never done this.
My first question is purchase...the truck has a 3 inch body lift....I believe that this means no change to the suspension, so do I purchase the Bilsteins with 0 lift ( they come in 0, 3 and 6 inch lift i think).
Second question, does anyone have a write up on a shock install? Any words of advice?
Soak with penetrating fluid long before working on it and use anti-seize on the bolts before installation
Get rid of the body lift

I bought the HI-WAY BLASTER HORN that's 139dB and every time I honk the horn an Angel dies.

Think about it...
youll want the ones with 0" of lift if you have stock springs. Install is real easy, just gotta be kinda strong those 5100's are a paint to compress.
When I installed mine I put the top in first, use an allen wrench and an open/boxed end to get it tight. then push the bottom up and slide the bolt in.
you can do it either way, its a little bit easier with the tires off but we did my friends with it on the ground because he lost his wheel key.
Just turn the wheel all the way to the left to do the passanger side and all the way to the right to do the drivers
