Hey guys I'm running a 2013 FX4 on 35x12.5x20's with a 6"BDS lift. I don't remember what offset I'm running but my problem is my front tires rub on my metal bumper on both sides when making a turn at certain angles. The 4x4 shop that installed my lift said they wouldn't install a 2" leveling kit with my 6" BDS lift because it would put something in the front end in a bind and if I ever hit a rough road, it would snap something in my front end. I work in the oil field and travel down bumpy *** roads all the time so if this is true, I don't want to mess up my truck. But I don't want to ruin $450 tires or my bumper either. Any input on this?
I'm putting a front set of Bilstein 5100s on mine this summer.
You are running the same exact set up as I am, down to the tires, wheels, and lift.... You don't rub on the bottom outside edges of your front metal bumper? Are you talking about the adjustable leveling shocks they offer?

I didn't see any adjustable struts that would fit our 6" lifts... I know they make a 2.5" lift, but because of the 6" lift, we would need an 8" strut... The 2.5" adjustable struts won't work correctly
Check with @2012platinum. Ive DM'd him a few times with questions about his setup. Cant remember if his life is BDS or what, but i know its 6 inches and he just recently added those bilstien adjustable 2.5"s to his truck so he can probably help you out with install.
I have a 2" leveling kit on my 6" zone offroad kit, brake lines are at there max and balljoint is at a crazy angle but my 37's just about ripped my front bumper off with just a 6 inch would love to do coilovers but interested in the bilsten setup as a cheaper route.
