Sorry if this is not the correct area to post. Does anyone know of a good installer/dealer with Bilstein 5100's in stock in the DFW Metroplex? I am looking to level my 5th gen and get some new shoes, but everywhere I call is either trying to sell me on a pre-load spacer or cant get Bilstein's for a few months. What are you guys thinking parts and install should run (including alignment)? I do have the Mopar max-care warranty and non-orp truck, so I will be sticking with clip #5 which is a 1.7in lift, that should cover me if anything has issues, as the fine print mentions that any lift under 2in would not affect or void warranty. Any further thoughts from you guys and gals?

How's it going, take a look into the Eibach shocks ride just as good as the bilsteins they are in stock on their website. Just had them installed on my Rebel for $500 parts and labor. Clip number 3 for my rebel 1.7'' of lift

I just used Fat Lip Customs in Haltom City. They did a great job installing Bilstein 5100's on my 2021 Rebel. I supplied the shocks I bought from Bilstein Lifts. I looked today and they had 27 pairs in stock. As far as the cost for installation, I paid $289 for the install and $100 for the alignment. You may give them a call though. There was some confusion and they had ordered shocks for me so they may still have them in stock.

Was that price for front and rear? Or just front?

I just ordered mine (5100) from www.bilsteinlifts.com as well. Installed on a Rebel on #5 clip. That website allowed me to send in an email and be on a waiting list. It was about a week before I got an email from them saying they were in stock. Like KRD820 said, they are showing they have some in stock right now. #5 clip on the Rebel only gave me a 1 1/2" of lift.

As FYI 4wp said 2 months they came in 3 weeks, they installed in about 4 hours, they did front and rear and added my springs, plus alignment for $700.

Also talk to Kevin at Renegade 972-597-4940, he seems like an honest guy. Tell him Dan from sachse sent you

Tazer, that $700 should be the shocks and labor installed. Not just labor.. I wasn't sure if that was what your were checking on.
I paid 262 for both front 5100 adjustable struts and it was a little over 200 for install.

Thanks Guys!

I ended up purchasing the Bilstein's online, front and rear, $460.00 out the door, delivering tomorrow. I found a shop over in Lewisville that gets good online reviews and he is going to install front and rear + alignment on Thursday for just shy of $400.00. Total $860.00 all in for fronts and rears. Going on clip#5, 1.7in lift. Just got some 305/45/22 installed Friday that ALREADY look amazing and completely change the look of the truck!

What shop are you going with? That’s a very reasonable price. Might go there to get my spacer installed

Epic 4x4 Offroad. It is in Lewisville. Ask for Sam, tell him Taylor referred you from the 5th Gen Ram Forums. Just picked up the truck and he did a fantastic job, clean install, and perfect alignment (with print out). Its a small shop, but they will take care of you.
