Have you tried any local shops in your area?

If forum sponsor Kolak can't find them, then you may have to wait for the next batch.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

I've always found this Authorized Bilstein online dealer to have the best pricing w/free shipping;

https://www.ajusa.com/

They appear to have the 5100 series in stock ready to go for your 2014 Grand Cherokee although I didn't try to place an order? 10% off Bilstein Coupon is available today!

They're out of stock at Bilstein and all the major wholesalers and retailers. Another Covid supply-chain disruption. They're saying October until there will be more

of course they are back in stock now, I ordered 4600 and already installed them in the rear. Quick question, is the 1.75 setting on the 5100 for the front the leveling setting?

Yes, the fronts can provide up to 1.75". The 5100 rear option provides up to an inch of lift. Personally, I think the WK2 looks weird with only a front lift, can you e-bay or return the rear 4600s?

The rear 5100 series aren't adjustable to lift the Jeep. They're a standard type, non-coilover shock. They're 16.02" collapsed and 22.54" extended.

The 4600 series is 16.02" collapsed and 22.32" extended - a negligible difference.

I see no reason you can't keep the 4600 series in the rear and use the 5100 series up front.

Right, I don’t want to lift the rear, I want to use the 5100 at a higher setting in the front to create a more level look, was just wondering which setting everyone has been using

So I installed the front struts myself, but now have a clunking going over bumps. I was told by the tire shop that my sway bar bushings needed to be replaced, this was before I did the shocks. I notice on the old struts it looks like a bushing under the nut but I couldn’t get them off, did I miss a part?

BWOODY sway bar end links cured the issue
