Overpriced & Don't last

I replaced my original shocks with these late in 2013. My driving is 98% highway, I rarely haul anything, and I can't remember the last time I towed anything with this truck. The right rear shock has been leaking oil all over the wheel well area for weeks now and the ride has been terrible. They are getting replaced by some KYB Gas-A-Justs this week. Save your money. These overpriced things might aren't anywhere near worth the money.

Huge Improvement

Finally got them on the truck and it is a huge improvement. I took the time to measure the height at the fender lip before install to determine where to set the c-clips on the shocks. The highest setting 2.25" almost levels the truck, there is still a slight downward rake. Ride is much more controlled the "float" is gone. Install on the front is a PITA, the ball joints are difficult to get apart. A pickle fork and a hammer won't do it, a ball joint separator tool is required.

Ride is a bit rough

I think these are very well built shocks. I had a set of 4600's on my 04 F150 and was going to put the same on my 2010 F150. They had them back ordered for months though so I got a good price on these. I like the ride a lot better than stock but liked the 4600's better. These are a lot firmer. I think the 4600's were a good balance of control and comfort.

Excellent shocks and struts

I used these shocks on the second-highest setting to level my 2012 Ford F-150 FX4. They give the appearance I was looking for any the clearance that I needed to run 34" BFG All-Terrain T/A KO tires. My truck now looks how it should have from the Ford factory. The ride is stiffened up just a bit, which is actually nice because it minimizes body roll.

The first time I ever saw Bilstein shocks was on the very first Chevrolet Z-71 pickups. They came with the Z-71 package, along with skid plates, etc. I noticed right away they were great shocks! The recovery time of these shocks beats all others. and, you hardly ever have to replace one. I'm a long time fan of Bilstein shocks.

Main intent was to for leveling. I felt this was a better alternative than a spacer kit and was a much better investment as it provided new shocks that are superior to the cheap factory shocks (ridiculous for Ford to put these cheap shocks on a truck equipped with a fact. off rd pkg..but thats another story). I set the front to the 3rd highest setting 1.5", it did well however if I had it to do over I would have went to the highest setting 2.25". Ride/handles much better than stock.

Good Investment

I had these installed on the top setting about 5 days. Heard rumors about don't go to the top on these. I actually called Bilstein and his answer was" why would we make a height if its not safe". Love the look of the truck and the ride is probably 20% better. Love em and AutoAnything beat everyone else's and had em on my front door in 3 days.
