The 5100 ride height adjustables really gave my truck a nice look. I put them on at the highest setting. They ride extremely well. Very smooth. I also put on new tires - 265/70/18 - replacing the stocks. When all done I got exactly 2" more in the front and it is exactly level. I will be putting 5100s on the rear soon too. But will probably put a 1" or 2" block in the back to help with towing height in rear. In all, the extra clearance is great.

Bought these to replace the rear shocks that came with the rough country leveling kit. These made a world of difference and I only replaced the rear shocks so far. I will definitely buy matching bilsteins for the front.

I bought these Bilstien 5100 leveling shocks and set them to the 2.1 setting on my 2014 Ram 1500 Eco Diesel 4x4 because it keeps my front end in OEM specs compared to using leveling spacers and these shocks leveled my front end perfectly with the rear! It rides a little stiffer than the stock shocks but hey it's a truck and it looks AWESOME!!! Make sure you get an alignment done after install. This is a great product and AutoAnything was awesome to deal with!

I am completely satisfied! I have used bilsteins for several of my vehicles through out the years. No issue, seen the change that I wanted in the performance when they were installed, that's what I was looking for. They are still affordable for my budget as long as I find specials or sales. John

Replaced my original equipment shocks with the 5100 series all the way around my '12 F250. What a difference! The truck handles remarkably better! Corners and stops without the usual sway I was used to and handles the small road chatter of bad roads leaving me with a much improved ride! These are absolutely 5-Star quality. Can't imagine not having them after using them only a few thousand miles!

I have had a few off-road vehicles in the past, and all have their plus' and minus,' but all have been radically improved when using the Bilstein 5100 series shocks! I use my vehicle mostly in the desert SW, and I go into a lot of places that are similar to the Outback regions, and these take me there without wearing me out by radically reducing the severe plunging that is common to off-roading; bound and rebound is now in check! They are by far the best shocks I have ever owned!

Bought the front shocks over a month ago and loved them so much I bought them for the rear. I had put a lift kit in and received cheap shocks with the kit and my Jeep TJ rode like crap. Its like a new vehicle with these shocks!
