Finally put 5100s on my 18 Ram 1500. I went the cheaper route in the past and put Ranchos in past Trucks. Never saw a positive change other than changing out worn shocks.
With the Bilsteins, yes they are stiffer but a heavy, sloppy Ram needs stiffer. This thing rides like it should. Only put them at 1.4 leaving me 1" of rake (I tow). Thank you to everyone on the forum for touting these things. I finally listened and it was a huge upgrade in ride quality.

They do a great job indeed. Congrats on the new upgrade.
I've got them in my 19' and immediately noticed an improvement in handling and cornering, especially on the highway on/off ramps.

I can’t decide between 2.1 or 1.4.
I’m stuck otherwise stock with stock 265s for a good bit so I’m thinking that 1.4 may be the route for me.
Do you have any before/after pics?

Put a jack under your front crossmember and raise it 1.4”. Free and easy way to see exactly what it will look like on your truck.
