BILSTEIN 5100 series are designed specifically to help your lifted truck, Jeep or SUV reach its pinnacle in ride performance, while supplying the correct tuning and length for your specific lift.
I recently bought these for my F250. My truck had the original shocks which had a very rough ride. I purchased these after looking at other reviews on the web. These shocks made a noticeable difference to the comfort of the ride and the handling is great as well.
I have them on a Sierra 2008 1500 4x4 that was z71 now I have this and is wayyyy better
I have been through 3 sets of Fabtech shocks since the 6" lift kit was installed and they just didn't last. Lifetime warranty against leaks, but not performance. These Bilstien shocks were a improvement. I'm looking forward to seeing how long they last. Just by looking at them, you can tell they are a better built shock.
When it says 3-4in lift, does that mean suspension, body or just overall lift?
Asked by Matthew from on
Matthew, when buying the Bilstein 5100 Series Shock Absorber, you only take the suspension lift height in to account, and leave any type of body lift out of the equation.

Hi Zortnik The 5100 Series Front Shock Absorber BIL24-186995 is a front shock and the BIL24-186995 is a rear shock. Thanks

I currently have a 2015 Toyota Four Runner SR5 with four wheel drive. I want to maintain the stock vehicle height. Will the 5100 effect the height? Is this shock as effective for vehicle control as the 4600 Bilstein shock?
Asked by None from North Dakota on
Hello rick.guzman, This shock will fit the rear of your stock height vehicle. This shock will not work with the adjustable X-REAS suspension. Thank you.
