I was quoted $600 at 2 places to have my Bilstein struts installed. I installed the rears myself. I think I paid about $330 for all 4.

Talk to Kolak here. He can offer you a great price on Bilstein struts and shocks and needed isolators. If you haven't replace the sway bar end links and bushings, you should think about that at the same time.

I was just thinking about contacting Kolak about the Bilstein's this morning. Like the OP, I drove the WK (it's become my wife's DD) for probably the first time since spring last night, and @ 75k, the shocks are close to done. What's the consensus on the Bilsteins for a non lifted application? I'm going to guess they aren't covered under my lifetime bumper to bumper warranty, but I should probably check before shelling out for parts & labor.

I did the Bilsteins on my 2005 with about 70K miles. Mine is a daily driver, almost never off road and not lifted. I also did the sway bar bushings and end links front and back. Handling was greatly improved
