Bilstein 5100s are a HUGE upgrade!


Recommended Posts

Looks Like Bilstein just came out with a complete front shock set up for the Silverado. Two front shocks includes springs. Adjustable up to 2.5 height. No price yet. To new

Yeah, curious about this. I asked a bigger shop close to me for a quote a while back and it was almost $1K for fronts & tears installed. ?

Holy chit!!! I was thinking no more than about $300 for the front plus whatever for the alignment....figured it shouldnt take a shop no more than a couple hrs

If they quoted $1000 they are ripping you off unless you were getting other work done as well.

It was $310 for install of the fronts and alignment. I also had them put on UCA too. $1,000 is insane.

Yeah I just googled the part number and zip. I’m guessing they will be around $400 for the pair...it’s too bad cause I just ordered my fronts and rears last night for the TB.

 

maybe the place I ordered them will back stock me and I can cancel it and wait til those come out.

Yeah they have a larger shock body the the 5100 fronts. Agree should be around 400 to 500 dollars.  Same as the Eiback front setup. I'm going to wait for then also. Leave my RC fronts for now. My rear 5100 will here this week.

      I've been experiencing a issue involving height related to torsion bars on my 1999 GMC Sierra. I am having trouble determining if it is the driver side torsion bar, or perhaps the driver side lower control arm being worn where the torsion bars sits in it. This issue is non-existent on the passenger side. On the driver side, I removed the torsion bar for some other work I was doing and when I re-installed it in the lower control arm, I noticed the keys were positioned differently literally every way I turned the bar or tilted the lower control arm on the driver side. The keys are the same but on the driver side the torsion key seems to sit lower than the passenger side when installing it making the driver side higher which in turn makes the lower control arm sit lower. This is causing far too much camber on the driver side making turn radius on that side a little sketchy. It is also making my lower control arm make contact with the steering knuckle. The ball joints are all new. Could this be a worn lower control arm, or possibly the torsion bar on the driver side alone? Is there a fix to correct the issue? If anyone has experienced this or can make better sense of it please let me know!

      Hello all,
      I have a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 4WD and I would like to install some Timbren bumper stops. On their website there are 3 different kits for the rear:
      1. Regular Suspension
      2. Magnetic Ride suspension and,
      3. Adaptive Suspension 
      I came across an article stating that the my truck has the Magnetic Ride suspension but I need someone to confirm the fact. Also if anyone else installed these kind of bumpers can you please share the part number that would fit to this specific model of GMC?
      Thank you.

      Looking for some information, I bought a 2004 2500hd 6.0l and wanting to clean it up, new fluids, ignition stuff, shocks and a few others. I started looking into shocks and bilsteins which led me to trying to figure out if any modifications to the level of my truck has been done. its a 2wd and already sits fairly level, I haven't actually measured it but just looking it its not far off. The keys look to be untouched so I don't think they leveled it that way, one question I did have is the rear shackles. It has them, did they come stock with shackles??? Any other way besides jacking up the front with torsion bars or lowering with shackles that leveling can be done?

      What's up everyone, I am new to the truck scene and in need of some help. I own a 2015 Silverado LT / RWD and have plans to make it into a somewhat of a pre runner. The question I have is, I am looking for some good suspension to be able to fit some 37" tires. I am currently running Pro Comp 8" lift kit (not too specific as truck came that way) but I am looking for something better as the ride is to stiff for my liking and also looking for something lower for that pre-runner look. 
       
      Thanks and hopefully I can get some help from you veterans!

      Currently have factory ranchos on my 2017 z71, have been thinking about upgrading to the fox 2.0 rear shocks. Has anyone had these shocks or have them? Are they worth the money over another set of ranchos or blistens?
