Bilstein shocks?

Is anyone running bilstien shocks. They look really fancy and are German made I think. If so let me know what you think.

fancy is an interesting choice in wording, but in general bilsteins have a great reputation for a quality, smooth ride.

I currently have Bilstein 5100 shocks on my TJ and I really like them.

I run them on my TJ and my 70 Cutlass 442.

In the past I've ran them on several pickup trucks, I've literally never had a problem with there shocks.

If you buy there 5100's just make sure you get the ones that are valved for a TJ, not just the correct length shocks for the application.

There a little more expensive then most shocks, but there worth it.

I love my 5100s.
I have had Bils on many vehicles over the years - always been a great choice.
