Replaced the worn out Rancho shocks on my 1974 CJ5 with 2.5 rancho lift, WOW night and day I love Bilsteins !!!
go down back roads, pretty smooth. no mountain roads yet, but I think they're going to work really well.
This is a great looking, great performing shock. Had to mount boot side down on my 86 k10 because of shock being to big around to mount the other way. It will pinch in the stock mounting brackets. Not a big deal to me. Only issue is that 4wheel parts apparently can't keep up with their inventory and will gladly sell you this product, including taking the money for it, without actually having the part in stock. Took about 2 weeks to get the part. They say their website can't possibly keep up with the inventory in all of their warehouses. It's 2015, I find it hard to believe this technology is not possible. Anyway, a bit of a pain but Bilstein makes a great shock. So yay for them.
