Product Information

MSRP: $480.00
Average Price: $268.79
Manufacturer: Bilstein
Yes: 118 / No: 4

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.

Price: $80.00
Pros: First Impressions Were Good
Cons: Short Life
Recommended? No

Comments: All four have failed after two years of service (less than 5000 miles of driving). They are not leaking but they make clunking and popping noises that are very annoying to listen to. Unfortunately I misplaced by receipt and no warranty will be honored. I purchased from Shock Wharehouse and they have no record of my purchase. They were drop shipped directly from Bilstein and they have no records of the shipment. BS if you ask me. Either way I'm screwed and won't buy their junk again.

Pros: Excellent ride SS body
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These replaced a set of Skyjacker Hydros that were completely shot so it is hard to compare. That said I didn't know a jeep with a 4" lift could ride this nice.

Bilstein 5100 Series
Price: $215.00
Pros: looks nice, well made. barpin cast into rubber so it wont be clanking on the mount in a week
Cons: couldnt feel any difference in ride or control over bumps from the factory shocks. obviously the cost when you cant tell you put them on. not that my butt is a calibrated shock tester.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: front F4-BE5-D784-H0

rear F4-BE5-D785-H0

this is the part number for a factory replacement shock on my 05 rubi. it showed up and was 1 inch longer than factory, that doesnt bother me at all. they look nice, except mine came with the light blue boots instead of the black boots?? the body of the shock is silver zinc plated.

They ride the same as the factory rubicon shocks. there is no difference in the ride at all, it still stutters over highway bumps, the bilsteins dont control the jeep any better than the jeep shocks.

oh well.

Comments: 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.

Comments: 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.

Pros: AWESOME offroad ability in the rocks. Great on road handling too.
Cons: Prone to leak failure.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 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).
