Have a bit over 50K on my '06 Limited (5.7) so sure shock replacement is in my near future.

Have a ZJ set up for more aggressive trails. Had planned on lifting the '06 as its replacement but still don't trust the 4-low system since the N23 recall so for now only plan on using the '06 for moderate stuff..

Currently have a near new set of 245/65R-17 Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar on the vehicle. Stock suspension. I'll be looking for bigger shoes once the N23 problem is solved.

Always been a big fan of Bilstein shocks. 5100's the way to go?

The Bilstein 5100 series struts and shocks are still on backorder. If anyone would like to harass Bilstein, let me know and I'll give you the rep's phone number. They need to hear it from not just their vendors, but from the end users also.

I'm glad I got mine when I did (from Kolak). I think they're fantastic so far. I just have them set at 0.75" up front and the rears out back, along with 245/70 Cooper AT3 tires. Leveled it perfectly and a great, firm, controlled ride.

This is what I think I'm gonna do with the wifes WK once they are back in stock. She wants it leveled and needs new shocks anyway.

I called Bilstein, and they gave me the number to the companies that ordered the largest quantity. I found the last set in a shock warehouse, and I couldn't be happier. i installed them at the middle setting, and the height is perfect with the stock height Mll's on the rear. I also love the ride nice, snug, but not too much

Do you still have that number? I orders my set in December and I'm still waiting on the front struts. Needless to say I'm getting very inpatient.

My vendor has 174 on order so if anyone wants to preorder a set let me know. I have 30 committed to me and they've got about 40 pre-sold to other people already.

Is everybody getting a true .75", 1.5", 2" of lift? I'm thinking about getting the 5100's and running the 1.5" with my stock length mll's.
