Product Information

MSRP: $480.00
Average Price: $271.08

Some of the highest quality shocks I have seen. Brushed aluminum casing really adds for a great look and light weight. Extremely smooth ride even with the highest of lifts.

Comments: I received my bilstein struts from Kolak who's service is excellent. Install was simple, although time consuming for someone with limited tools and experience. Ride improved, more stable on road, no nose dive under braking. Overall extremely happy with purchase.

Price: $289.00
Pros: Great Ride
Cons: Didn't come with mounting bolts
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This was my first lift install and I found the instructions were minimal. When I mounted the shucks I had to buy grade 8 bolts from the hardware store which I didn't know I had to do at first. Also when tightening the top shock bolt you have to use an allen key to keep the shock from spinning.

Price: $347.96
Pros: Rough ride with great articulation when traveling over rocks.
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These are solid mono-tube shocks. If you want something that will give you that Cadillac ride this is not the shock for you. If you want a shock that actually lets you feel what you are driving over this is the shock for you.

Comments: Bought these from Kolak. He was extremely helpful and informative. Had to replace my OEM's (only two years old and already worn out) and what a ride difference. Don't feel the bumps that used to make be skip on the highway...just a much smoother ride.

Comments: I needed new shocks and struts and wanted to go with something more than OEM replacements. I am very happy with these shocks and struts, and I picked up a little more clearance with them as well.

Pros: Ride, handling
Cons: Install
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Amazing shocks I had Rancho 9000X adjustables before and thought i had good ride. These are just night and day its amazing how smooth the ride is girlfriend loves them she can atually fall asleep in the jeep now!!

Handling is so much better used to skip accross the road in a turn if I hit a bump no matter what the Ranchos setting was now the shocks just suck it up no skip nothing.
I did have a little scare with the new ones there is this one bump I go over is bad and my jeep would skip a good foot when I hit it but with the Bilsteins I was correcting for the skip and there was none found myself heading for the guard rail LOL. nice to see that the shocks do there job now no more correction needed.
