    If you're going to get a set of the Bilstein's, pick up a set that is about 2-4" longer than stock. The stock shocks once you crank the front, even 1", are too short and limit the down travel of your front suspension.
    2011 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, Dmax/Allison, Taupe Gray Metallic, Line-x over the Rail & Rockers, S&B Intake, Banks Monster Exhaust, Rigid Dually D2's, Cognito Leveling Kit, Cognito Steering Braces plus much more.
