Purchased the Bilstein 5100 Series to replace my Rubicon Express Twin Tube shocks on my 2006 Rubicon Unlimited with 3.5" suspension and 1.25" body lift. The ride quality, as expected when replacing the twin tubes with monotubes, increased greatly. The less amount of yaw is noticeable and the vehicle seems more responsive. I would definitely recommend these shocks for anyone looking to upgrade their ride quality.
While the ThyssenKrupp Bilstein Company began as a German enterprise, Bilstein shocks are developed and manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio. Bilstein develops and fabricates premium quality monotube shock absorbers directly for automobile manufactures, aftermarket outfits and motorsports applications. The precision and craftsmanship in manufacturing that fueled company growth in Germany were brought straight to the factory in Hamilton, Ohio. The factory includes an engineering department, rigorous shock testing facility and a motorsports track. The track allows the engineers to tweak their designs in response to real world testing during development. The rigorous testing allows for designs to go through a machine simulated life of a shock absorber in all kinds of terrain conditions. The resulting products promise the highest in performance.
