Make sure you keep water out of the top of those UCA's. Have had my Zone UCA's for less than a year and some of the powder has chipped because they cup water like no other.

it didn't look like they would hold any water, i'll have to take another look at them to see what youre talking about.

got a chance to install the bilstein 6112, 5160, 3/4 inch spacer, and the zone uca today.

i bought the shocks last year sept 2020.

install wasnt to bad, took about 5 hours total for everything, thats with me, my dad, my friend and his son giving each other hell while i was doing all the work.

will be taking the truck to get it aligned in the morning.

i had the front shocks set to the 2.8 setting and for the rear i used the 3/4 inch spacer, i might swap out to a 1 inch spacer later down the road.

the rear is 1/2 inch higher than the front right now.

i freaking love the ride!

I’m trying to do my 6112 install with new strut top parts to prebuild the struts. Do you remember if the dust shields are really needed? I’m worried that they help center the spring isolator and the spring will move around with out it. New ones are $40 a pair and a few weeks out. Would prefer not to have to tear down my original struts.
