BDS 4" Lift with Bilsten 5100 ???

My local Ford dealer said if I buy the BDS lift from them it will not void the warranty. I figure if I have any trouble with the kit I can go back direct to BDS. There from Colwater MI, and the BDS shop is right behind the Ford dealer. My question is can I replace the BDS shocks with Bilsten 5100 shocks. Or do you guys think I would just waste my $$.

I would go with the 5100s over the white body 5500 Series BDS shocks that are standard with the BDS system.


Another option would be to upgrade to the 9500 series shocks that BDS offers.
