Bilstein B8 5125 shock absorbers are designed for custom applications and are a perfect solution for vehicles that do not have a direct Bilstein fitment. These high gas pressure monotube shock absorbers are sold by various lengths and valve rates to accommodate a wide range of uses and custom fitments. All B8 5125 shock absorbers come equipped with industry standard 5/8 inch hour glass bushings and are available in either an eye/eye or stem/eye mount configuration. The shock absorbers feature a 46mm piston with self-adjusting deflective disc valving. Bilstein B8 5125 shock absorbers are the ideal choice for custom suspension builders.
The shock arrived in a normal amout of time.
However the shocks did not fit as shipped.
I had to spend another $60 on bushings.
I feel the tech i spooke to should know what is needed and not just want.to make a sale. And attempt to make a return is almost impossible
So i paid top dollar for the shocks amd now bushing and installation.
Poor customer service

These shocks are great. Be prepared to have to find a custom option for bushings unless you actually have 1/2 bolts for your suspension.
I had 14mm end had to get 3/4 ID bushings from Daystar and get a custom sleeve online to fit the 14mm bolts. The fit is superb now and the shocks are awesome.

2.0Work great on a Jeep terrible on HD trucks.
I bought a set of 4 for my Ram 2500 4x4 diesel because the set I have on a Jeep TJ have an excellent ride quality. Unfortunately in less than 25,000 miles on truck they are completely shot & look like they overheated to the point of melting shock boots & I only use this truck for on-road driving. Very disappointed.

Everything went as expected but never got a tracking number. The shocks are universal so had to cut the steel bushing out of my old to put on the bils as the shock was to narrow without and could not torque without distorting the shock mount. 18 ram 1500 with rc 4 inch rear lift

5.0Bilstein Shocks: 33-185569
Received my rear shocks in a couple days. Free shipping and not tax. They were just what I ordered and they mounted on my Silverado very easily. They look so good I wish they weren't underneath my truck.

5.0Great shock, watch for delayed shipping
This is a great looking, great performing shock. Had to mount boot side down on my 86 k10 because of shock being to big around to mount the other way. It will pinch in the stock mounting brackets. Not a big deal to me. Only issue is that 4wheel parts apparently can't keep up with their inventory and will gladly sell you this product, including taking the money for it, without actually having the part in stock. Took about 2 weeks to get the part. They say their website can't possibly keep up with the inventory in all of their warehouses. It's 2015, I find it hard to believe this technology is not possible. Anyway, a bit of a pain but Bilstein makes a great shock. So yay for them.
