Just got done installing my bilsteins from Kolak, I have only drove it with the fronts on so far. It does ride better than with the RC shocks. Man those rears are a ***** to compress and slide into the mount.

Depends on which direction your clamps are facing, mine were all facing backwards to where they were barely reachable

Just remove it one day at home to see what's involved and decide on keeping it or not. I keep mines on as it does have a dent. Don't know when I got the dent, but it wasn't there when I bought the jeep so I know I did it. I tend to bang up parts most people don't like my tranny pan.
Would you happen to have a pic of this skid showing the location of these two bolts?

They should be set to between 18 and 18 1/2" for a 4" lift.

Whatever the measurement, just make sure they're relatively centered in the wheel well and that both sides are adjusted EXACTLY the same!

You don't want to have them un-equal!!

Good luck.
