BILSTEIN's 5125 shocks offer BILSTEIN technology for custom lifted applications. B8 5125 shocks feature BILSTEIN's superior monotube gas pressure design for the utmost in consistent fade-free performance and long life.
I have a 2005 F250 with a Fabtech dual shock set up. I had Walker Evans Remote resevoirs. They were worn and tired. Didn't feel like breaking the bank with a similar set. Replaced them with these and holy cow are they amazing. It rides 100% better. No lifted truck is going to ride like a Caddy but it's darn close with these. Do yourself a favor and get a set of these. Shout out to Carl at x5122 for helping me out!!

Bilstein 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.

Great 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.

Very good control
I needed new shocks because my 10 year old Doetsch Tech's were leaking so I bought these due to reputation. I was suprised how good the ride is now, exceeded expactations!

Good Front Shocks for stock 71 FJ40
These shock absorbers are amazing...However, the measurements on 4wheel parts are a little long. I would go with all of the adjustments, but lower the extended and compressed length by about 2-3 inches would be safer. I am slowly restoring a pretty much bone stock 71 FJ40. The old shock absorbers were OEM and were totally worn-out.
i have a 2004 gmc sierra 1500...it has bilstein series 5125 in rear and bilstein shock absorbers in front with resevoirs on each side..so 4 total in front....looking to change the front that does good on street as well as off road that dont have resevoir....the lift is a 6 inch cst....

The 2004 GMC Sierra has a few options for Bilstein 5125 Series shocks. Since yours already has a lift on it the best course of action would be to contact our customer service center @ 877-474-4821 and speak to a service rep. They can find the perfect shocks for your truck
Have a 77 Toyota Land Cruiser with 2.5-3" lift, compressed length with jack is 17.5 inch in the front, 19.5 in the rear. Both front and back hanging from bumpers is 21.5; should I use a 5125 series (i.e. Bil33-185590) or a 5100 series like 185552. OK to use same shock for front and back? thx

This part number will not fit your vehicle application. The correct front Part Number: BIL33-062518 and rear BIL33-185606. if that will not fit your have custom mounts in the vehicle. Thank you.
will these work on a 2005 jeep liberty with OME 928 rear springs
