I bought a set of OE type loaded strut from NAPA that came with them same spacers long ago . If you had one of the slightly taller versions of the 1500 like the TRX was before you would add that so you didn't lose the added height the TRX had . same as the Bilstein 5100 has a stock setting and above that a .7 notch is the stock notch if you were installing them on the older TRX model. I added it to my 17 with Eibach spring / Bilstein 5100 at stock setting but didn't like the stiffer ride so they are back on the shelf with a bunch of old spacers


I'm doing a 3"lift with new struts and upper control arms. Wondering if I should put them back in then? My truck did come with the mysterious extended ride height.

I agree with the above. 3" with just a strut or strut/spacer is already pushing it in my mind . I would leave it out at that height .7 is damn near 3/4" , that on top of 3" I feel is over the line with stock CV shafts and upper control arms
