Installed on a 1984 CJ7 w 3.5 inches of lift from springs and shackles. After installing new Old Man Emu YJ shocks, the Jeep was very bouncy. Before spring upgrade, it was jarring. I installed these and thy calmed the bounce on the springs. Very happy so far. Can't wait to get on the trail with them.
The service was great and the guys were very helpful
Bushings and sleeves included. Simply install and great ride.
Good product as always, fit perfect for my TJ Unlimited and gives me great flex and feel on the street. Perfect for vehicles with on road duty and weekend warrior
I bought this 5125 as an auxiliary shock on my 1991 Ford Bronco quad shock setup with a 6" lift. The primary shock is a 5160 with remote reservoir. At first I thought the valving would be too stiff but it really provided stability while letting the suspension to travel and work as it should. I can push the Bronco hard through a corner and the Bilstein help keep it stable. Prior to adding the 5125 it would roll into a corner and dip the nose when coming to a stop. I love the way it rides now, especially without custom valving. Just bolt it on and go.
great ride on the back of a tacoma. the 170 valving is a much better choice for lighter trucks.
I put it on a wk jeep with 4” lift. It works amazingly. However, it’s not a direct fit. You will need a steel bushings and washers to fit in.
Adapters required for the front of my 1977 F250 but the length is perfect.
Q: Would these work on a 2002 Tacoma trd with a 2” lift kit Answer this question
A: They are working for me with OME rear leaf springs. The eye bushing is too small and will need to be reamed out to fit the stock mounts.
