Wanted to add 5100 adjustables to level a 2008 1500 on a 5"RCX lift. Will it kill the bump stops if I put the shocks on the top setting? Thanks

I was thinking the 24-186940. Do you have any suggestions? Im wanting the front to be level or just above. The front is 1 1/4 shorter. Thanks

When I installed my pair of Bilstein 5100 adjustable front struts on the 1.18" setting (the 3rd adjustable setting) in conjunction with the 4" CST lift, the Bilstein 5100's netted me 1.5" of additional front lift.

Thanks. Ive been wondering about where to set them. If I set them at the top? Will they bottom out on the bump stops?

So put it on the high setting and cut the droops. Thanks for the help. Trying to get just enough height for a set of 35's.

HaHa Greater height? Mistakes happen when it is Friday and the beer is flowing. I wouldn't have it any other way. Have a great weekend all and drink up!

U want the bilstiens that adjust up to 1.77 inches. They work fine with the Rcx 5. U don't want the cognito bilstiens 7-9.

Honestly with that setup you'll be fine. Iirc a lot of people have that setup with no issues. You'll end up around 7" of front lift
