I knew I had to replace my shocks on my 97 Jeep Wrangler. As asked some members from a Jeep Club I belong to and I received a few different suggestions, overall Bilstein's seem to be a popular choice. After further research Bilstein 5100 Series was the consensus...I am extremely happy with my choice.
Really like the gas charged shocks. Big improvement in ride quality.
Easy to install. They are good on washboard roads. Not the best shocks out there, but the best bang for your buck.
Hello, My name is ryan and im new to the offroading world, so my question is will these shocks fit for a 05 jeep wrangler sport with a 3.5 inch lift?

Hi Ryan, Yes, those are the correct Bilstein's for the front of your lifted TJ. If you need the matching rear it will be 24-185264. THANKS!

While the ThyssenKrupp Bilstein Company began as a German enterprise, Bilstein shocks are developed and manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio. Bilstein develops and fabricates premium quality monotube shock absorbers directly for automobile manufactures, aftermarket outfits and motorsports applications. The precision and craftsmanship in manufacturing that fueled company growth in Germany were brought straight to the factory in Hamilton, Ohio. The factory includes an engineering department, rigorous shock testing facility and a motorsports track. The track allows the engineers to tweak their designs in response to real world testing during development. The rigorous testing allows for designs to go through a machine simulated life of a shock absorber in all kinds of terrain conditions. The resulting products promise the highest in performance.
