Leveling a 2WD RST with 5100s and Tires

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I absolutely hate the ride of this truck and want to change the shocks regardless, but am curious about using the “universal” Bilstein 5100s. Can I use these on the front to level the truck with it being 2WD? And is that all I need to do it is the shocks?


On another note, I have 20s and want more sidewall. What’s the biggest tire I can put on without having issues? Thanks in advance!

The 5100s will probably get you CLOSE to level with a 2WD. The T1s do seem to have less factory rake than the K2s. 


Bilstein has not released 5100s yet, though. They are supposed to be coming within the next 60 days. 


For the rears, you wouldn't really need 5100s, but just 4600s. Unless you want to lift the rear a little in the future, too.
