Part One: The Shocks
These new 5100 height-adjustable shocks from Bilstein feature multiple snap-ring grooves to provide different spring seat positions, allowing height adjustments from 0 to 2.5 inches. The shocks feature specific split digressive valving, high-gas-pressure monotube technology, as well as zinc-plated bodies. They are rebuildable and come with a lifetime aftermarket warranty. The company also offers companion rear 5100 shocks with matched valving, so we picked up those so our truck would have a nice, uniform ride.
