I think he should listen to you, I really do.

I wonder if its just the one side of the unit or the whole "unit" that doesn't like the idea?

O forgot to ask you all I know a guy who knows a guy who can get 99-04 Jeep WJ Grand Cherokee 2" Lift N2.0 Rough Country shocks half off. Are these any good? The price would be a lot cheaper then the 5100's.

Sorry Snobrdrkid I didn't mean to highjack your thread. But since it's more of a discussion as of now and i respect everyone thats usually appearing on your thread this seems like the best place to ask.

RC shocks are the bone bottom brand name in shocks to be honest... I also do not support their company due to some of the really crappy products they make for WJs case and point shock relocation brackets. I suppose their Nitro shocks are better than the el cheapo hydros but they're still going to be nothing like the reputable Bilsteins. Mine say designed in Germany, made in the USA all over them.... can you get any better than that?

I am however quite disappointed with how well the finish is holding up on the 5100s. This is what's happened to them in under a month of winter weather

hmmmm I wonder if I should warranty swap mine... did you wax yours or do anything? I've literally only had mine on for a month of Rochester weather.

I'd wait to warranty swap them. Miles well use them until they start tusting.

dont wanna spam michaels build but heard back from kolak and apparently they definitely are not supposed to do that, somethings wrong with mine just in case thats turning someone off from buying them. I might have to get a warranty swap on them but rather sooner than later seeing as I can show its obviously something wrong with them seeing as I've only had them a month

Yes that would be nice wouldnt it.... Kolaks a great guy and he definitely cares about me, I'm not going to push a 5150 upgrade although it would be nice I just want 51xxs that will last me a while. I highly reccomend Kolak as a vendor for any of y'all

Odd on your 5100 corrosion problem....

Yes do 5150s if possible!
Only complaint with mines are when the rear wheels tuck, it'll rub the shock, and a eee-wee-bit of the reservoir. But when I compare them to the washboard driving, I can easily do 30mph without bouncing

and cowboyup94, the 5150s costed me 530shipped from IRO. But remember, I live in Hawaii so shipping was like 90 bucks
