    Default Bilstein 5100 Instructions?

    I did a search and found some basic instruction at one point, but I can't find them again. Anyone have a good install sheet or writeup on how to install the Bilstein 5100 adjustable front shocks? There are various parts in the box with the shocks themselves, and I want to make sure I have a good outline printed up before I take the truck in later this week to have it done. Thanks

    I ordered mine on 4/19 from OffRoadWarehouse, along with the TC diff drop and TC steering rack bushings. They actually sent back an email stating that they were 2-3 weeks backordered. They shipped out everything on 4/30 and showed up on 5/4

    Did you ever find any good instructions for this install? I received mine today and am installing this weekend. Looks pretty straightforward, but would like to have something to go by. I am doing the install at my dad's garage, which is kinda far from any allignment shop and would like to find instructions on how to get the alignment close.

    Hey Guys, I'm new to the site. I am actually in the process of installing these shocks right now on my 2000 2WD Tundra. I am a little confused by the instructions though.... I can't figure out how the Bumpstops and washers are supposed to go. Do the two rubber bump stops fit right up together? Or are they separated by the mounting plate? So the order would be (from the bottom) Washer - Bumpstop - Mounting plate, (the one with three bolt studs) then bumber on top, washer and nut???

    I really hope you guys can help me out. I have been searching for two days and Bilsteins customer service seems to be closed... I know this is an old thread but I figured I'd give it a shot.

    Thanks,

    Will

    Starting with a bare shock rod, dished washer goes on first, with the "cup" up...Then the mounting plate goes on, (it has a built in bushing, see OME/Bilstein strut mount/isolator question if your mounting plate bushing is old, or you just feel better using a possibly better bushing).
    Then on top of the plate, goes a Bilstein bushing, with the protruding edge DOWN toward the plate, then the other dished washer goes on, with the "cup" down, then the nut goes on top....
