Make sure the boot is down. I watched a YouTube video install that recommended not lifting the frame up. You have to or it won't fit unless you are strong and compress it beyond the bands that keep it from coming out. If you lift it a few inches it'll slide right in. Then you cut the band after tightening the bolts.

Great shocks

wow, installed rear shocks loved them so much, i order front ones , they are truly better than the ome ones,the ride is so much smoother,if you decide to install the front yourself, and of course you would have to youtube the insall as i did, beware the guy in the vid uses a new truck for the example which makes it seem way easier than it is!

The seams in concrete highways always did make for a rough ride but I didn't realize how much the OEM shocks were contributing to that uncomfortable situation. That is until one began leaking after a 100 mile bounce along in Colorado. The new Bilstein 5100 shocks have made a huge difference in ride quality, control and comfort. It's still a pick up so you get a pick up ride but what a big improvement the new shocks have made.

Easy to install and reduced body roll going on to interstate. Firmed the truck up.

Better than stock

This is definetely a better way to go than an aftermarket leveling kit. I replaced a preload spring kit from Prolift with the adjustable struts and couldn't be happier. Firm, but good ride and perfectly level with no rake. Great product and easy installation. Does not come with coil springs or spring perch, but can purchase new from dealer for minimal cost.

Made a difference you can feel!

I know what you are thinking. Another review for something high prices that works as well as a lower priced item, right? Wrong! Lol. I was hesitant to buy these shocks because of cost. Close to a hundred per shock seems excessive. BUT.... Everywhere I read and every form I came upon praised these shocks as changing the whole dynamic of how their truck rides. After installing them I was completely blown away. Just the rear made a huge difference. She rides smooth and stable now! Buy em. they rock

Perfect shocks and struts

Came from stock struts & shocks with a strut leveling kit. This was an amazing upgrade that gave me the same leveled out look with better shock absorption than stock with a leveling kit. The shocks come with instructions as there are parts off of the stock strut that is needed. Couple hours later I had a smooth ride. FYI the strut that is pictured (upper most) does not come with the lower spring coupler (black piece) make sure to keep the old strut til install is complete.

Great performing product

For everyone that thinks leveling kits make for a harsher ride consider this: i went from stock pirellis to 33 in bfg ko2s on my 2012 f140 fx4. Ride was alot stiffer due to d range sidewalls. After 2 weeks i installed bilstein leveling shocks and ride is almost back to stock feel. Really tames the bumps and potholes. Looks great and quality product. Installed myself. All day project due only to difficulty compressing springs
