Bilstein Valving for Lifted ZJ
I'd like to hear only from people who have experience with a similar setup to mine, please.
I have a 97 ZJ with 5.25" lift (RE 4.5" kit w/ 3.5" springs and 1.75" puck), skid plates, steel bumper w/ winch, etc. I am running Bilstein 5100's for the 6" lift (24-185943), but they are too soft offroad. I feel that the nose wants to dive while driving over rocks and dips unless I go way slow, but I love the way it flexes while crawling - I get a ton of flex. I found out the valving is 126/47 front, and 255/70 rear. What would you recommend I revalve the fronts to? I know standard options from Bilstein are 170/60, 255/70 and 360/80. This Jeep is 65% offroad trails like Calico - Doran, Odessa, Big Bear, etc. (Not the Gatekeeper at Calico).
If you have bilstein's with a similar setup to mine and you like it, what are yours valved at, and what kind of trails do you run?
