Hey everyone. My first post here, looking to level the front of my commander out, and am seeing that the 5100's might be a good option to get new shocks and achieve the leveled out look. Is this possible with stock springs? Also, not seeing them anywhere that say they fit the commander. I know some of you are running this, do you happen to have a part number I can use? Thank you!
I'm a little confused as to why you want to switch out your rear shocks to level your Commander out when stock Commanders sit low in the front and higher in the rear.
If you are just looking to level your Commander out, you simply need to raise the front about an inch to an inch and a half.
You could change your front springs - or you could just add spacers to your front struts/springs.
Remember, Commanders have struts in the front and shocks in the rear.
Bilstein's website says their 5100 rear shocks do not fit Commanders - but they do.
This is the part number for the 5100's I'm running: 33-225807.
Yes, you can run 5100's with stock springs.
But again these Bilstein 5100 rear shocks will do nothing to level out your Commander if you are currently sitting on stock suspension components.
Rough Country sells a kit specifically for leveling out Commanders.
Their 2 inch lift kit is a load-leveling lift kit - which is what I'm running.
