Lift OPTIONS........

OK, this just gets to be TOO much info.....I'm looking to run a little bigger tire (265/65/17) and have been looking around for lift options. Thinking the Bilstein 5100 for the front and some spacers for the rear. My WK is pushing 140k so new struts for the front prob wouldnt hurt, I'd like to know how the Bilsteins are performing. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Bilstein shocks and struts are top shelf suspension products. Doubtful you will get anything but positive feedback and just as doubtful you will dislike them if you pull the trigger and get them.

140k miles? If you still have stock struts and springs then all of them are definetly blown. OME if they are stock.

If you want a great strut that's adjustable to lift/level your Jeep, the 5100 series are awesome. And they just finished a batch after waiting 5 months again. Should have some next week. PM me if you'd like pricing.

I have 5100's all around on stock springs and rear spacers with 265/70 AT 2's on the stock wheels with 1.25" spacers. It's fine on the street with just the slightest occasional rub with no pinch weld mod yet. It will have to be done for any serious off roading.
