Comments about Bilstein5100 Series Shock Absorber:

The bigger the hit, the better these shocks seem to work. The only time I haven't been impressed is every sewer cover will be felt a lot. Still, a very good shock for the price. Also I was really surprised at the quality as they came out of the box. These shocks are beautifully made!
