Installed these on my old '98 Ram 2500 Cummins. What a night & day difference in the ride. Definitely a quality shock. I purchased from 4wheelparts.com using their package deal where you buy the set of 4 shocks. I ordered on the website and talked to customer service the next day to finalize exact part numbers. It was a very easy and painless process. The package deal on shocks can't be beat!

Very nice ride and handling. Blew out a Pro Comp and replaced them with these. Should have installed these from day one. Handles the front end of a diesel truck much better.

Comments about Bilstein5100 Series Shock Absorber:

After having 3 shocks go bad in the first 40k and the dealer wanting $600 to replace them with the same factory shocks it was time for an upgrade. Bilstein's reputation and lifetime warranty made it an easy choice. I only have a couple of thousand miles on these but have been very pleased with the improved handling of the truck. Noticable difference in the ride. Not necessarily smother but much mo

Comments about Bilstein5100 Series Shock Absorber:

Made the front end a little stiffer, but in my opinion that is an improvement to the stock ride! These go great with my leveling kit and the truck doesn't sound like the front end is going to break over every bump now!

Comments about Bilstein5100 Series Shock Absorber:

07 Dodge 2500 turned over 100k. Old shocks were done,oil leaks,no dampening,the ride was terrible.The new Bilsteins ride is great, much better than brand new OEM shocks on the rode. Off-road the Bilsteins are many times better.They handle washboards,g-outs,whoops and flat out fast conditions better than a big ole truck ought too. The only con is that only one of the four shocks I received was ban

Comments about Bilstein5100 Series Shock Absorber:

Easy to order, arrived quickly. Good shock with a good reputation and most of all......good price. Installed on a 05 Dodge Cummins 3500 4x4. Did the rear in about an hour or so. The front a little more involved and they took a few hours total. Overal though very easy.
