Which Height Setting Is Level On My Bilstein 5100 Leveling Shocks?

Vehicle: 2011 Nissan Titan 4WD
Question: I just bought the Bilstein 5100 Leveling Shocks for my 2011 Nissan Titan. They look great but there are several different height adjustments I can set these at. Since I have to install them before I actually see how high they will lift my truck I want to get it right the first time, how can I tell which setting it should be on?

Bilstein 5100 Leveling Rear Shocks 2011 Nissan Titan 24-186766

Answer:Because each different configuration of a pick up truck - 2wd or 4wd, regular cab, extended cab or double cab (or even bigger on some other trucks), short bed or long bed - will weigh a different amount and sit differently, it's impossible to tell which setting on the Bilstein 5100s will sit exactly where you want it to. Typically the middle settings are a good starting point, since the bottom setting will be equal to stock and the top may leave your nose pointing up in the air like a prerunner truck.
One option is to get a jack under the truck and measure just how high you want to truck lifted, then pick a setting on the Bilstein 5100 shocks that will match that leveling.
Keep in mind - these trucks come from the factory with a bit of rake for a reason, when you load up the rear with a heavy load or trailer, it will sag and if your truck sits level normally your front end will be higher than the rear.
