Got my 5100's installed, set at 1.75 height , I'm pleased ride is great . It feels like a 4x4 now, firm but not rough. Thanks for everyone's imput on these Bilsteins, for the money you can't go wrong.

Looks great!

I call it "firm, but more composed".

And you're right, it's low hanging fruit and big return on the price.

Personally, I feel the rest of a new F150 is way too nice of a truck to come with that oem damping.

I had thought about going 2.1, but decided on 1.75, a little rake is ok.
Trust me you'll like the ride quality much more on the setting you went with rather than top setting.

I wish I had only gone with the .75" mark (second ring) in hindsight, but I'm at the third ring and it's working fine and the shocks are great. I sag a bit when towing even with the WD set pretty tight.. But, it still tows great so no worries for now..

You just need some taller rear blocks ;)
