Reasonable service life for Bilstein 5100s?
 
Does anybody know what kind of service life to expect from the Bilstein 5100 series shocks? Replaced the fronts some time ago to 5100s and replaced the rears from OEM type the other day to 5100s which made a noticeable and much appreciated improvement.

I've had Bilstein 5100's on my truck for at least 5 yrs and haven't noticed any degradation in the ride.

I when through 3 set in 2 years. They where nice when i got them but for the price the monroe is a better choice IMO. I will go 5160 or fox 2.0

But for those that don’t know your truck, its lifted, right?

Did you get 5100s or the 5125 series for special applications? I know Bilstein only offers a short warranty on the 5125.

Ya the 5125 have only 30 days warranty. I change those for 5100 in the first year because i removed the lift.

Now its level with bushwaker cutout still on 37. Ill update the signature when i get few min and update the picture lol few things change haha
