Topgunz Dual stabalizer install

Well i ended up ordering the stabalizer kit and Bilstein shock from TopGunz and I have to say what a difference in the steering!! night and day for sure!! The shocks were a minimal differnece but can definately feel a difference on choppy roads.

Topgunz on the phone were great to deal with but when I went to install I noticed that I didin't have instrucions for ANYthing!! so I ended up looking ar pics from their website to figure out the install... worked out pretty good but still would have been WAY faster if I had them. Also it would have been nice to have the right hardware... most of it was wrong so the install took way longer than it should have.

For anyone that has this setup am I supposed to remove the stock dampener? and I am curious why the fronts shocks are installed normally and the rears are inverted?? is that normal for the 5100's??

So they didn't come with instructions, and the hardware was wrong. Sounds great to me...

Did you have to buy new bolts and such?

It said $289.95 w/ Bilsteins? That seems cheap. Except for the install...
