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
These shocks are described as universal fit however it did not bolt up to my 2013 Tacoma without a “Eye-To-Stem” adapter which luckily they had in stock here in Hawaii! So just be weary if your rear shocks are stem shocks then you’ll need a conversion kit!

The best shock you can get
Bilstein are top of the line shocks. Reliable - high performance with distinctive design. What else to ask for?
Hello, will the Bilstein 33-185576 5100 series shocks fit the rear of my 2004 Ford F-250 4x4 XLT crew cab short bed 6.0 diesel which has a pro comp 8.5" lift kit? I have found a couple places saying yes but every application guide says no. The measurements are as close as I can find to the ones on it now, the Bilsteins are less than an inch shorter. I know the lower eye mount is a little bit bigger then what's on there but that can be fixed with a different bushing or bigger bolt I would think. I really want to replace the front and rear shocks on my truck with the bilstein 5100's if I can get the right part numbers. Thanks!
