Bilstein 5100 Front & Rear

So, it begins...

I have a good size weekend project ahead of me. List of things to do (with comments) and in no particular order:

  • Install Bilstein 5100's on front and rear (I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'll figure it out)
  • Decide how much lift I want - have not bought new tires yet since mine have enough to get me by...(246/65/R17)
  • Resume alignment (I started one and the boys at my shop said to bring it back after strut install)
  • Replace oil pan gasket (may defer this one depending on time allotment)
  • Oil & filter change (of course)
  • Replace Rear Wheel Speed Sensor (getting the dreaded "Service Elect. Brake System" & ABS Warning)
  • Replace A/C Blend door actuator (A/C makes terrible clicking noise)
  • Replace interior driver's side door handle (When I find the right parts for the right price)

Fortunately I have access to a shop that has a vehicle lift bay where I can perform the work.
Any input and advice is welcome!

I put 5100s all around my commander, have the fronts at the highest setting, gave me 2.5", did a 1.5" rear spacer lift. Stance is perfect and obviously rides way better, thats why I put 5100s on everything I own.
