Has anyone installed these Bilstein 5100's to level front along with 5100's in the rear? Any pictures? I have these on a 11' Dodge Ram 4x4 in the front set on the middle setting and levels the ruck out nicely and the ride is perfect!

I ask because I have an 06' WK limited 5.7 only has 45,000 miles. Looking for a little lift and to run some 2013 Sahra 18" Rims and tires (255-70-17)

I would also like to see a WK leveled out with these Bilsteins, please post some pics! My Rustys spacers just didnt level it out enough for my liking ha.

I have just installed the 5100's on my 09 4.7 laredo. I had my buddy set the front struts to the 3/4 lowest it leveled the jeep out real nice. Bought them from Kolak!! I tried to post pics but for some reason its not letting me now say file size to big. Ride and handling are amazing. Had srt8 swaybars put on as well. Ill try to post some pics. I have stock suspension by the way.

Sounds good I'm glad you are happy with them.
I think you have to link photos through a site like Photobucket or something similar.

can the height of the 5100 be adjusted while on the vehicle (say for example on the trail)? Or do they have to be removed to be adjusted to another height?

These things look nice! Thanks for the super fast shipping and amazing customer service as always Kolak!





I'll be using the middle setting and removing my rustys spacer. Should net 1" over my current setup (plus using some cut down poly spacers for the rear).

How much would these mess with your cv axle angles?
