Bit of a challenge to install, but not real hard. It's easier if you have 2 people. Removing the old rear shocks was really the hardest part as bolt rust easy there. Tip, installing new ones you can use a ratchet strap to compress the shock to get it in there. Felt a bit better on road that the what I replaced it with. Then I took it going about 30mph down a bumpy dirt road... wow what a difference! Can actually cruise down that now without getting majorly knocked around.
I have an 02 TJ with a 4in lift. I am putting h New bumpers front and back with a wench. Will these hold up under the added weight.

Hi Derrivck The 5100 Series Shock Absorbers are very good shocks but shocks do not keep the Jeep up level. That would be the springs that do that. 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.
