At the risk of looking dumb, which way do the rear Bilsteins go in? Boot up or boot down. I put them in boot down, but saw them on a pic of a truck with the boots up. Which is right for my truck? I hope they are not wrong. Thanks.

With the Bilstein HD ones I put on a few months back, they go in boot up and body down as in the picture front and rear ..other Bilsteins may go in the opposite way for lifted applications.. PM Freeze he would know for sure

You can install them either way. Boot orientation doesn't really matter.

Hey freeze thanks for the reply... I didnt notice 'til now!!! I figured it didnt matter too much. Guess I'll leave it how it is then. I like thea way they handle now. Feels like a truck should.
