Installed the Bilstein 5100s...

It made a big difference. Before and after loading for the trip I measured and the squat is about 1 3/4". That is with the 5th wheel loaded for the trip. Can tell the difference on rougher road surfaces. I think it was worth the money!!!

Besides EGT, fuel pressure and boost gauges on the A-pillar, FAST coolers and an aftermarket lift pump...

Added them to all 4 corners of my 2011 gmc 2500hd with 111k last week.. huge difference on all surfaces, especially rougher roads. Towed the 5'er yesterday up to the lake,, nice improvement with less roll and a nice planted feel overall. Definitely recommended.
