I haven't found many places/shops that are interested in doing that kind of work (customer brings own shocks and wants shop to put them on). Nope, I don't trust myself to take everything off, install the shock myself then take it to get it aligned.

For most items I didn't install myself, I simply bought the cheapest online then brought them to the shop for installation. Actually I haven't found any local shop that complained about that. You should move to Western PA. People are nicer around here, haha.

Most shops are willing to install, maybe won't warranty it since it's not their parts. But these are good and bilstein is good about warranty returns.

How do these compare to the others? Procomp, Emu, etc. Are these adjustable? Also, why just fronts? Wouldn't you need all 4 for balance?

These are a step above stock, ProComp has really stepped up their game, especially for Tundra So, I'd say ProComp and Emu are the next step up from the Bilsteins.

Reason this thread is for 'just the front', these have been back ordered for a long time. There is a very small run released, when they're gone we don't know for sure when they will be available again.

My supplier was only selling the whole kit (fronts and backs) when they were first released. I get a lot of requests for just the fronts because this is the cheapest 'right way' to lift the front of the truck.

My opinion is that y'all should get the fronts and backs. But, if the goal is to only fit bigger tires on a budget, this is a really fantastic way to do it. And $229 is a really good price

Do these fully level the truck? I've heard mixed reviews on that within the many threads... I'm really wanting it to actually be level if I make the move. I don't understand how many are saying the front is still 1/2-1" lower, if these raise it 2 1/2" in the front and the 3/1 kits net out a 2" lift in the front versus the back.

Steve, this is a tough subject for me. It drives me nuts to see a 3/1 'level' kit.

It generally takes 3.25" of lift up front to bring the truck perfectly level front to back. So what is the '1' for???

The front end should only be lifted 3", which is still 1/4" lower than the rear. But, at 3" it will look level to the naked eye.

If you lift the front 3" and use a good aftermarket upper arm, your trucks alignment will simply fall into place if you use a talented alignment guy.

These Bilsteins are the cheapest correct way to lift the front. But they won't level it.
