I have a 2011 Lariat 4x4 EcoBoost on which I would like to do a slight front lift. I don't want to level the truck, but I'd like to lift the front just a touch and put some 275/60/R20s on it. It's a 33" tire. I want to improve the look but keep some rake for towing and MPG considerations. Is there any lift achieved on the "stock" setting on the front 5100s? If not, would the 1st lift position above "stock" achieve what I'm looking for? Thanks.

Nevermind the price, these don't even fit on your 2014! There are currently NO aftermarket front struts or coil over assemblies that fit. Ford went ahead and changed the lower mount and apparently didn't notify anybody, so everbody is trying to catch up and get new parts on the market. Bilstein directly told me June. same with all the other manufacturers. back to the original question of course the price will be up for this yr!

He is correct on one thing, prices have not gone up! Although Bilstein did change pricing we have lowered ours for 2014

Bilstein is in the process of moving factories so production has been limited. As soon as we get more fronts we will be making some noise on the forums.

Hey Kobyh, The 5100 for your truck has 4 height settings, the lowest setting is supposed to give .65" of lift, which sounds like exactly what you are looking for.

looking forward to details as to how soon 2014 fronts will be available!!

is there an extended length rear shock, say about 30inches extended length that bilstein offers that could also stiffen up the rear of my 150? i run an add a leaf that is giving about 1.5 inches of rear lift and a leer 180 shell. want max travel from rear for trails when needed. ppl have suggested raptor rear stock shocks for a bit of extra travel at 29.5 inches long extended and good performance but something more cost effective would be ideal if comparable for my needs.

I believe that Pro Comp makes extended length rear monotube shocks for the F150.

ya they have the following two that may work;

32950X 29.83 17.32 12.51 Loop Loop 2.36
33200X 32.83 18.82 14.01 Loop Loop 2.36

a bilstein that is in the middle of these two would be perfect.

Totally, we carry Bilstein - FOX - King - ICON and more that make a perfect shock for that application. The least expensive will be a bilstein 5125 shock, it is similar to the 5100 for the F150, but 10% stiffer and comes in various lengths.

We offer one that is
Collapsed Length (IN): 17.91
Extended Length (IN): 29.65

The rear 5100 for the Fx4 is
Collapsed Length (IN): 17.68
Extended Length (IN): 28.9

Extended Length (IN): 29.65


what type are they? any fronts for a 2013, i might get on my dealerships butt to change my control arms to 2013's because as the snow melts i get out on the trails and these spacers have go to go.

opps see they are 5125's, reading helps... tnx!
