Bilstein lift

Does anyone run these 5100 series night adjustable struts? I have them on my F 150 and love the ride. Just curious if anyone has experience with them on a WK...

I'm running them on my 2007 WK 2WD and like them. I got them cause I wanted to level the truck out since the back sits high stock.

Can these be used along with a spacer lift? I really need new struts and would love to lift the front a little more.

Not sure. I would ask member Kolak. He will know.

That would depend on which spacer lift you have. If it's a strut plate style kit that would work fine. If it's a preload type kit, then it would not work fine lol.

It's the rc spacer lift. Not sure what type that is... I think it's a strut plate spacer, is that assumption correct!

Yes - Rough Country uses a spacer at the top of the strut tower to provide the lift in the front.

As mentioned above you can use the Bilstein height adjustable shocks with the RC strut plate.

If you'd like a set of Bilsteins, send me a PM here on the forum. I have Bilstein on special right now.
