Great way to get the truck level that doesn't change ride quality (in my opinion) installed on a 2012 ram 1500 express not on the top adjustment and clears 35/12.5R20 mud terrain tires with no clearance issues very happy with how it turned out

The ability to adjust the struts is key. The ride is also better than stock on my lifted 2011 ram 1500.
I have a 2011 Nissan frontier. I have 4 inch CST spindles installed along with a PRG 2 inch spacer on top of my stock coil overs. Should I be ok if when I get these installed, I crank the shocks up 2 inches. That's a total of 8 inches. Also can the boots be removed because the website does not allow for that option?

You can install these with your vehicles configuration, however you will have to run them at stock height. Adding any more lift to your vehicle will create issues with steering angles and cause premature failure. Boots do not come with this strut. Thank you for the question.

i have a 2011 ram tradesman with a 2.5 leveling kit. If i install this product will i need an alignment?

Yes, installation of the Bilstein 5100 Series Ride Height Adjustable Shock Absorber BIL24-187367 will require having the vehicle aligned. Thank you.

I have a 2014 Ram 1500 Big Horn. I plan on putting a Zone 6in/5in rear spring. Im set on buying these for my front end what would you recomend for the back end?

If your vehicle is a 4x4 this part number will fit your application. If you have a 2WD, Bilsteinonly offers the non adjustable 4600 series struts. As for the rear you will need to get us an extended and collapsed shock length that is required. With that information we can get you the correct rear shocks for your truck. Thank you.
