Seriously reduced the 'jarring' feeling of the stock shocks! My Jeep has a 2.5" lift and extra weight from added Jeep Armor so I think the stock shocks were just overloaded.

Easy installation, great shocks
Used these to replace some worn out shocks that came with the Jeep (not original shocks). The installation of shocks in a Jeep is a pretty simple task normally and so was straight forward and simple. The new shocks did not make the job any easier or more difficult than it would have been with any brand.
The stainless steel look that these have are awesome, much better than the old yellow color some of the Bilstein shocks have. The one thing that was different is that the rear shocks are mounted piston side down instead of reservoir down, but they look good and function great.
The difference is that it's like driving a better than new Jeep, the difference is quite noticeable. Planning to hit Moab in the next 30 days so we'll see how they handle that environment but from what I've seen so far, I don't anticipate any issues.
If you have a Rubicon, you need the gas pressurized shocks anyway, get these, you'll love them.

Shocks that really absorb
When I bought my new 2013 Jeep JK I put a small lift on it and new shocks to lengthen the travel, however the brand I chose gave my Jeep a harsh ride so I was under the assumption that I would just have to live with it. After talking with guys at 4 wheel parts he told me they used Bilstein 5100 series on their rides. I thought oh well why not if they are good enough for them then why not get them for my jeep to help soften the harshness of the ride. WOW I still can't get over how much better my Jeep rides and handles, hands down these will be the only shocks I use in any future vehicles.
Great product and great service from 4 wheel parts.

The Bilstein Company knows how to build a great shock. Highly recommend for any build project or just replacing stock.
I have a 2009 Wrangler unlimited X Jeep with the stock suspension. Did this product number (Bil24-146708) is the correct Bilstein 5100 shock for the vehicle or there is a model from 0" to 1.5" lift in case that I decide to lift it 1" on the future?

I've a 2007 Wrangler JK, non-lifted. I need front and rear shocks. Does the offered "great deal on a set of four" come with the appropriate set for the front and the appropriate set for the rear, including the bar pins needed for install?

Hello Steve, Bilstein 5100 Series Shock Absorber will come with the correct shocks for your Jeep as long as you enter in the year and make of your Jeep.

Purchased '08 JK with skyjacker lift. By the model numbers on the shocks it is a 2.5" lift. Will these shocks work? I'm concerned about the difference in length, the skyjackers are 13.54" compressed and 22.75" extended with 11.12" stroke.
