Just ordered my Bilstein 5100's over the phone with Kolak.
Good guy to deal with. Thanks Kolak!

On a 2007+ Wrangler Unlimited, how do the Bilstein HDs compare to the stock Rubicon shocks? What's the difference in ride and handling between them?

I have a 2009 Rubicon Unlimited with about 34k miles on it and the stock shocks are getting soft. I don't plan to lift it, and it's driven on the street 90% of the time. When new, I liked the ride/handling combination. I wouldn't mind a little bit stiffer, but I wouldn't like a lot stiffer, so I'm trying to figure out if I'd be happy with the Bilsteins.

I've done a bit of searching on this, but I haven't really been able to find a direct answer. Some people say the Bilsteins are stiff, others say they ride great, but that's with all kinds of different suspensions and Jeeps.

The Bilstein HD shocks are a high pressure monotube design vs. the low pressure twin tube design of the stock shocks. A monotube shock offers better ride control, overall handling, fade resistance and more rapid responsiveness than a twin tube low pressure shock.

Bilsteins are also digressively valved, meaning they firm up in corners and curves but soften during rapid excursions such as rocks, curbs, washboard surfaces, potholes, etc.

I think you'd really appreciate the ride and handling of the Bilsteins. They have a lifetime warranty too.

PM me if you'd like pricing.

Great guy and great pricing. I have 5100's in the rear and 5150's in the front, and I am happy with the way it rides on and off the road.

Thank you for the great deal on a great product Kolak! Sent him a PM, he sent me a price, then a paypal invoice, easy as that! Also responded very quickly to my order status questions.

Thanks again!

I went for a long distance ride yesterday, first time with the Bilsteins. The ride was so smooth and enjoyable. I could not be happier. Thanks again for making the shocks affordable.

Six year old rough county springs. Nice and broken in.
