Any recommendations on suspension? I drive a TON and want a better ride. I would also like to level it.

I am in a FX4. Wifey has a Tremor. Both have their pro/con for suspension. I want something better than both. I drive 75% interstate 20% bouncy country road and 5% dirt.

I have read that bilsteins ordered from mfg direct is best. thoughts?

How much money do you want to spend?

I would prefer to stay under 1k in parts.
Bilstein 5100 kit is on sale for $500 at stage3motorsports. You reuse the factory springs, perches, but you get four new shock absorbers.

Suspension is VERY subjective.

I'd suggest trying to find locals who will let you test theirs out before buying if you've never played around with them before.

Bilstein 5100s. Got mine installed last Thursday. World of difference in ride quality compared to the FX4 shocks/struts.
