I have a 1993 ZJ that runs 35" tires. The lift is over 3 inches but do not know the exact lift brand or height as it was on the Jeep before I purchased it. I need to know if I can run the Bilstein 5100 24-185943 on the front and back, and if not what 5100 part numbers will I need?

Asked by Ryan from United States on

I can get these to fit but I would need you to measure your truck. Take off your shocks and let your axles hang full droop by jacking up your truck by the frame. Then measure center mount to center mount where your shocks bolt in.This is the lengths you will need for front and rear. Call me with this measurements when you're ready to order. The price will be the same just the part numbers change depending on size. Morgan 310-900-5558
