Bilstein 5100's????

Hey guys looking for struts and shocks for the crd.
What setting are you using on the struts?
.75"- 2" lift.

Just a road queen mostly.

thx

If you don't lift the rear.. I would set it on the low .75" for best mileage (and a .75" lift) or in the middle for some extra front wheel travel.

I set mine on high for the 2" and then put a 1.75" spacer on the rear. It still has that Rear looks higher than the front look to it.

Tires are 32.6"

Then mileage drops as you level it out. Not much maybe 1 mpg.

I have the 5100's at the 3/4 setting and just 5100 in the back. It leveled it out nice. Don't off road mine. I have the srt swaybars and Bwoody end links. Very pleased with this set up.

If you're going to stick to stock tire size, go with 3/4" and leave it alone.

Mine are set at 1 1/2" then I added 2" rear springs from Rusty's and a spacer up front for another 1/2". I'm sitting at more or less 21" all the way around with 255/60-18 tires. Looks real nice I think.

How do your UCA angles look? I've got strut spacers and rustys springs to install with my 5100 equipped XK.

Just fine, it's only 2" over stock. Stock springs up front still. I'd go another inch before going for aftermarket UCAs.

OME HD springs with bilstein 5100 shocks/struts. I added jba ucas, just because I have almost 150k miles on the jeep. 1" wheel spacers too.

The winch mount is steel armadillo aka TSA. I had to modify some things for it to fit with the Mercedes 3.0 diesel. It holds a warn 12k winch. BTW, I think tsa is offering a group buy on them for $425 on their facebook page.
