Awesome Suspension Performance and Front Leveling

Leveling your truck and getting a smooth factory ride don't always go hand-in-hand. Many aftermarket leveling kits reuse your stock suspension hardware which leaves you with a factory ride and suspension performance at best, if not worse. Bilstein, one of the biggest names in performance suspensions, cuts out the middle man with this 5100 shock kit that includes high-quality adjustable front shocks. These shocks allow you to set your 2015-2018 F150's front ride height to stock, +.79", +1.26", +1.75", or +2.10" of leveling by using their adjustable spring seat tabs. The adjustable design is paired up with legendary Bilstein quality and performance that let you take these dampers anywhere for any application you have in mind without fear. Rear monotube shocks are also included to provide extra stability and handling performance for your F150's rear end.

Steel-Cased Monotube Shocks with Unique Piston

Each of these shock absorbers feature an ultra-strong steel body with a zinc plated finish that protects against corrosion. The shocks all feature a monotube gas-charged interior design with a digressive piston and self-adjusting deflective valving which allows each shock to work at varying ride heights and give your truck improved articulation in off-road application. All four shocks feature a large 46mm diameter that gives them a huge oil volume for less fade during heavy and sustained articulation off-road. This complete kit is a direct bolt-on replacement for your factory shocks and can be used with your factory front coil springs and rear leaf springs.

Fitment: this kit will only fit trucks with 4WD. A version of this kit for F150s with RWD is also available.

Replaced OEM shocks and a 2" spacer leveling kit. Had professionally installed, as pretty involved on this vehicle. Ride quality/control much improved, perfectly leveled the suspension. Fast shipping, great price from Stage 3 Motorsports

2016 F150 Lariat FX4 / 5.0L
Researched and decided on the Bilstein 5100's to try and get some of the factory rake out of my truck. I've had the truck for a year / 18,000 miles before installing the 5100's. Chose the 5100's because they offer different height settings. I didn't want my truck completely "level". Decided to use the + 1.75" setting. Took measurements at the top of both wheel wells before / after for reference. Before: Front 37-1/8" Rear 39-1/2" produces rake of 2-3/8" After: Front 38-5/8" Rear 39 1/2" produces rake of 7/8" It appears the + 1.75" setting on the shock produced + 1.5" of lift on my 2016 F150 with the 5.0L I've driven around 500 miles since the install. No issues with settling. Truck ride is a little firmer than stock without a load - rides really smooth with a few hundred pounds in the bed. I expect the ride to smooth out with a few more miles. Very happy with the "look" and ride. Worth waiting for the 5100's to fit my truck.

2017 F150 Lariat SC 3.5L Ecoboost
These shocks are awesome. Definitely firmed up the ride quite a bit vs stock, which I think makes the truck much better to drive because it isn't as floaty. I put them on the highest setting and got about 2" of lift in the front after it settled for about 3 weeks. There is still some rake and I think overall it looks really good with 33" BFG AT KO2s. Install was pretty involved but not terribly difficult. You do need a really good spring compressor. It took me about 5 hours for the first front side and 2 for the second. 20 minutes for the rear. CJ Off road has a good install video for Eibach springs which is basically the same thing. That's what I used to guide me.

Love the new shocks, can feel the difference driving, ( lot of potholes here) I am on the 3rd perch which is a little over an inch of lift. That combined with the rear block i removed from the rear has the truck almost level now. The install time is about an 3 hours total. Use a good spring compressor, I used a wall mounted spring compressor at an auto garage, it was safe, quick, and easy.

Self installed this and it took a little bit to figure it out but overall quality is much better than leveling pucks.This kit stiffened out the bounce in the back end and rides great. Make sure you have it done professionally or have the correct tools. This is a 4-6 hour job if your doing it in your garage. Heavy duty spring compressor is needed. Good luck but overall a great buy for leveling.

2016 F150 Fx4 Sc
I did the install and with a brother helping we were done in 5 hours. In retrospect, we could have shaved that down to 3.5 but we were in no hurry. The rear remained the same heiht, the front went up almost 3", they are now even. One thing not covered much is the axle nut, other than on and off to swing the assembly out of the way. Once done, you will need to put it in full 4x4 mode, move the vehicle forward slowly and listen for the hubs to lock in. After that, they are engaged and won't need that again. Also when you get it all done and before removing it from the jacks, you can test the hubs. The procedure for that is: turn the wheel and note that the front axle turns. Start the truck in Park, brake on, again turn the wheel and it should spin free, no axle engaged. In other words, the hubs are engaged unless the engine is running and then the vacuum disengages them. Mike was great in getting the kit shipped to Alaska, really appreciated his help! Shipping was fast.

Set the fronts at 1.75" and the rake is perfect on my truck. After install the ride is much better and doesn't have all that bouncey crap that it did with the OEM shocks. Love em, love em, love em! Best mod money can buy.

Rear shocks took approximately 30 minutes. Front removal of strut assemblies took approximately 1 hour for each side. I had a shop compress the springs and install the shock. 2 inches of lift in the front. I regained my rake by installing 3" readylift blocks in the rear. The ride is prrfect.

Installed on the highest setting, just a slight rake left. Look and ride way improved! All of the factory "float" is gone and the truck feels firmly planted. Very glad I did this mod. Great price and fast shipping from Stage 3. No regrets here, get a set today!

2015 F150 SCrew 4x4
Driveway install took about 4 hours working alone (first side takes most of the time as everyone says). I didn't want to loosen the LCA bolts in an attempt to keep the alignment close, so I cut the factory lower shock mount bolts to get them out. As it turned out they had to shift the LCA during the alignment anyway so no reason to try an preserve the factory location. Basic Harbor Fright strut spring compressor worked, but just barely and the screws were bending a fair bit to compress these springs enough. Used the 4th position (~1.75" lift) and I still have just a little rake which I think looks good and hopefully doesn't stress the upper ball joint too much. Just enough clearance for 33x12.50 tires with 5.5" backspace wheels. The ride with the Bilstein 5100s is just as everyone else describes - firm but not too much and stops the sloppy behavior of the stock suspension with heavier aftermarket wheels and tires. Highly recommended.

If you're on the fence, don't be. Get them. If you're shopping for the ideal solution for lifting the front of your 2015-18 F150 4wd for a reasonable size tire, this is a good route to consider. I installed them at the 2.1" lifted level in front and was able to clear a 275/65-20 tire mounted on a 20x9 et25 wheel with zero issues. The shocks really improve the ride as well. I installed the rears myself and found that to impart a noticeable improvement in overall ride quality; after installing the fronts (professional installation recommended), the overall improvement in ride and performance was simply amazing. For the cost of the shocks and the installation for the fronts, I do not think you can beat it; certainly not with a leveling lift puck system, which can seriously degrade the ride and cause premature wear on suspension components, which I wanted to avoid. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would...

Rears 15 min, front 3hr + 2hr. The video leaves out import information as to how the axle is reinserted into the hub. You must either pull a vacuum on the auto lock hub or rotate the rotor or risk damaging the mechanism when the axle is tightened - $100 dorman part or $175 dealer.

Love the look and the ride. Took my local offroad shop about 2 hours to install the fronts. I installed the rears in about 20 minutes in my driveway. I set them to the 2.1" setting and it looks great. Still a slight rake but as close to level as I want. Was unsure about tire fitment but I put 285/60/20 (33.5 x 11.5) Goodyear Duratracs on the OEM 20's and they fit great with no rubbing or anything. Stage 3 is awesome. Great customer service, prices, and quick shipping.

F150 4X4 2017
I was hesitant to buy these, but the price made me think maybe I should give Bilstein another look. Whenever I compare reviews, I've noticed that the cheaper items get rave reviews, and the deciding factor is usually the price. I'll gladly pay for quality. Somehow, in this case, I got a quality item, at a good price. I've had the Fox 2.0s, the procomps, the Ranchos, and others. I rate these right up there with the Fox shocks. I had around 500 miles on my '17 150 when I installed these, and very happily surprised with the difference. I initially was only interested in the variable height thing with the front, I used the 3/4" setting, to level my lowered 150. For once, the huddled masses were right, these are a top shelf item, very surprising at the low cost. Since my vehicle was new, everything well with installation. Of course the fronts took longer since it requires you pull steering gear apart, and you need a spring compressor. Really though, if you know anything about these trucks, you'll know all that going into it.

2015 F150
It does what you want it to, levels the truck. It took about 3 inches of rake out of my 2015 F-150 when set to the highest level. I installed all four, a huge upgrade on the rear shocks, the front are definitely stiff set to the top level, but i don't mind it. Had these installed on my 2010 as well, set one notch down from the top. If you're after a better ride quality, don't go all the way up to the top notch, instead go one notch down. All in all, i'm perfectly happy with it, i knew what i was getting going in and will continue to put this set on all my vehicles.

Installed the Bilstein 5100's set at 1.25" I would have liked to set them higher but I pull a trailer with a Polaris Ranger loaded on it and the truck sits almost level with that setup when loaded. This setting takes about half the rake out of the truck and looks great with the OEM 2017 Raptor take off wheels with Falken Wildpeak AT3W 285/70-17 I installed with the kit. The install is straight forward, no magic here it's just work but as you've read in other reviews you will need a very good coil spring compressor, don't go cheap and injure yourself or worse. I'm also extremely happy with how the truck rides and drives, it's actually an improvement over stock in my opinion. Great product, much better solution than the hockey pucks everyone's using on their trucks. Stage 3 has the best price and service I know of, get you some!!!
