  1. This is where I got mine. Fast shipping too. https://www.bilsteinlifts.com/product-category/chevy-gmc/silverado-1500/2019/
  2. It was $310 for install of the fronts and alignment. I also had them put on UCA too. $1,000 is insane.
  3. I have it set at 2” lift. I had the 2” ready lift under strut spacer previously. It sits pretty level.
  4. Google becomes a very expensive accessory rabbit hole, that’s for sure. I’m sure you’ll find the right ones. Stock rides leaves a lot to be desired.
  5. So that would raise to a total of 4”? You would definitely want an extended shock. Bilstein made a shock for 2”-5” lifts, but, for the ‘99-‘18. I’m sure a google search you would find the right ones.
  6. I like the offset of that wheel, just the right amount of poke. I think there is room to run 35’s if you decide to go that route. How are the Ridge Grapplers on the freeway?
  7. You have the correct parts. Fronts have the boot inside the spring. You won’t be disappointed.
  8. That is correct. I didn’t go with a 35x12.5R18 because I wasn’t sure if it was going to rub on the UCA and I didn’t want to trim anything. Turning lock to lock nothing touches. I think you could run a 35, it would just be SNUG. I am basing it off the UCA I have as well. I can update with pictures later.
  9. Max is 80 psi. I could run them down a little but I load the bed often. Rides well, I’m actually surprised. They also make less noise than the duratracs I had too.
  10. Good point. It could be a combo of the two. I think it’s mainly the shocks though since the tires are rated LT, and filled to about 50 psi.
  11. Greetings all, I was pretty unhappy with the way my truck drove. I have a 19 LT (5.3) and I put a set of Trail Boss wheels/tires (275/65/18) on it. But, I noticed that no matter the size of a bump I went over the rear end swayed and the front bounced for what seemed like 20 minutes. Some bumps felt like my eyeballs were going to pop out of my head. Living in Los Angeles the freeways and streets are terrible, so I was in the market to get new shocks to help with the ride. I ended up getting the Bilstein 5100s. I got the adjustable height front strut and eliminated the ready lift under strut 2” spacer. I kept the truck level and set at the 2” lift position. I also installed Cognito tubular upper control arms. I was thinking about lifting in the future, so it made sense to install at the same time. I ditched the 275/65/18 DuraTrac tires and got 295/70/18 Atturo Trail Blade XT (I’d be happy to give initial thoughts on these tires, I have about 1,000 miles on them now). They are about a 34.5” tire but only about 11.5” wide. Separate topic of course. These shocks have GREATLY improved the ride quality of the truck on both street and highway. I would highly recommend these shocks if you are in the market. Best bang for the buck. I have driven about 1,000 miles of combined city/highway and they are worth every penny. Even my wife has noticed how much smoother it drives. If you have any questions about the shocks or tires I’m here to help!
