Bilstein B12 Spring Kit 1-1.5" Rear Suspension Lift - Reviews?

Has anyone actually installed this new B12 rear spring kit for the 1-1.5" lift (normal load)?

I'm so close to purchasing these so I've been looking for reviews all over the inter-webs, and can't find any.

If you have installed them, or even the 1.5-2" or the 1.5" heavy load, please let us know your thoughts.

Pics/reviews would be most appreciated!!!

Looking forward to seeing the results! I have the 1Ē springs on route now. The 6112/5160 shocks are on back order so unfortunately I will have to wait for those before install. Iíll post my results with photos, but you would have probably made your decision by then.

Are you just wanting 1Ē of lift and no additional load capacity? I talked to the bilstein engineers about these springs before I did my lift. I would have bought them but they werenít available. I got tired of waiting and bought the Eibach 1Ē springs that have a 10% stiffer rate. The Eibachs were also cheaper.

What's the Billstein's spring rate?

When I asked, Bilstein said factory rate. They never gave me a number.

Hey @Harrisnc ... The only extra 100% constant load is that stupid sliding cargo tray and then 75% constant load I have is my 65lb lab, ~50lb bike rack with 1-2 bikes coming in at an additional 20-40 lbs. So I guess that adds an extra 155 lbs, then 5-8 times a year we add an extra 150lbs of camping crap on to that. So I'm still way under the 400lb constant.

Thoughts?

Do you have a good shop up in CLT? I'm down in Spartanburg.

Iíve had my bike rack, 3 bikes, kid and less than 200lbs of gear in mine and it still has some rake. Daily driving, I can tell itís firmer butit I donít know how much of that is the shocks.

As far as shops, I do most of my own work. There are two shops here that Iíve used but Iíve had issues both.

So I'm ready to add a lift to my 4th gen. I've read the ome springs can be a little too stiff especially in the back, and saw these b12s ... They look promising. Curious to hear everyone's thoughts as well. Thanks

On backorder

Like everything Bilstein mines on backorder but it sounds like itíll ship any day now after waiting 5 weeks. I opted for the heavy duty with 5100 all around because I plan to use it for a tow vehicle for a 4000lb trailer in the summer. Tongue weight droops my stock rear suspension down to the bump stop and is well over 400lbs. Iíve carried my small snowblower on a hitch carrier and thought the camper would be similar, but itís way more sag than Iím comfortable driving at highway speed.

Iíll post pics when done.
