    Bilstein B8 5100 Adjustables for WK2

    I got the struts and shocks installed. The coil spring compressors I had were not up to the task of compressing the front springs quite enough. Instead of ordering a better tool, I just took the factory assemblies and the new struts to a local shop. $35 and a few hours later, I had two fully...

    Bilstein B8 5100 Adjustables for WK2

    86' F150 Build

    The previous owner put 33x10.50 BFG A/Ts on my 85 F150. I haven't noticed any rubbing, but I've only had the truck a few weeks and haven't had a chance to really test it out off-road.
