what means the compression and rebound? its for heavier trucks or what?
JA THE JOTAX from ORLANDO, FL on
Compression is the downward force or static ride height of the vehicle. Rebound is the upward force of the vehicles load. All vehicles shocks have a specific valving for compression and rebound. This helps keep the tire contact patch on the ground giving you better traction and ride quality.

We would need to know the manufacturer of the lift kit. Some manufacturers relocated mounting positions of the shocks. With that information we can put you on the correct Bilstein 5165 Series Reservoir Shock Absorber BIL25-176117
