Bilstein 5100 Replaced F250 KR OEM
I knew my factory shocks were bad but geez!!! I took them off and they had absolutely no bounce back (no wonder the truck bounced like crazy). I replaced with the Bilstein 5100 series and wish I had done this last year. I couldn't believe the improvement in how the whole truck handled. I would hands down recommend these to all who need superior shocks. The fabrication is on point, the dust boots are heavy duty, and total replacement time is about 2-3 hours. CHEERS!!
I ordered these on October 7, 2016 and the arrived a few days later. Rob B. in customer service was excellent, he answered every question and even did some research to make sure I was getting the right item for my application. The struts were relatively easy to install and they perform as advertised. I set mine at 2.1 inches and I gained 2 inches in the front end. My truck looks much better and these struts have not negatively effected my handling and ride. Highly recommend.
These shocks rock
My cousin has a low miles 13 tacoma sr5. I knew the 5100s would be a huge upgrade and I was correct. The cab went from feeling like it would fall apart shaking and the truck bump steer over every imperfection in the road to riding like a better than new truck. I quote "it rides like a new bmw"-cousin. We adjusted the height to .85 setting on the front shocks and it doesn't ride stiff at all.its amazing how the valving on these shocks is more aggressive yet they ride so nice. Highly recommend.
