I just put a 2.5 leveling kit from RCD with Bilstein shocks (don't know what model) They are the shiny aluminum looking ones. Big difference in ride. So much better. I have had Bilstein shocks on all my trucks. You can never go wrong with them.

Not needed for the street but look cool. Std Bilsteins are much better priced.

The 5150s are a good shock......however the application specific 5100s would offer better valving and a better warranty.
