Bilstein 5100 Series

Look great, handle well, much better than other shocks that I have had experience with.

I purchased the 5150 series and they are great. I went with YJ springs with an SOA set up and ordered the Bilsteins for my application. Nice riding shock...

Bilstein 5150 Shocks. Perhaps a little bit stiff - but provide an OK ride @ 4.5" lift. Nice with remote reservoir.

I bought these shocks because of Bilsteins reputation, especially in the workld of Corr racing. I paired them up with the OME springs and have definitely experienced much less bump steer since installation. I highly recommend these shocks.

It's a smooth riding shock and for someone who spends as much time on road as off it's great

May or may not buy again. Had two rear ones go out complete and one of the front ones spews its juice occasionally after aggresive hard wheelin (rocks).

These things have held up well and really complement the lift. I'll probably eventually have to go with a longer shock, but for now they are great.

I just swapped out my RE Monotubes for these. I haven't had them off road yet, but the ride on the road is so much better than the REs. It's like night and day.

Great set of shocks. My jeep is set up for the desert and playing in the sand so I needed something so that I can jump my jeep. fun stuff.
