    Just to wrap up this thread, I installed the 5100's and it cured the "step out" that plagued the back end of the truck. Nice ride improvement too. Good mod, should be one of the first ones anyone does.

    Agreed. Actually, ford should just put them on from the factory. The trucks shouldnt do this. Mine got sideways on a highway on-ramp and i nearly pooped my pants.

    I had a 2019 Ram 1500 classic hemi 4x4 in Houston the past 5 days as a rental and that truck rides and handles as good, if not slightly better, than my truck with Bilstein 5100’s. There is no excuse for the shocks they put on em.

    I didn't notice this till I put heavy duty ply tires on the rig, then it became really noticeable. I think it is because of the light-ness of the aluminum body with stiff sidewall tires.

    I agree it was unnerving to say the least the first time it happened...
