WOO-HOO!!! I got my Bistein 5100 series shocks installed yesterday at my local 4 Wheel Parts store in Beaumont, Texas. The difference over the factory “faux” Rancho shocks was unbelievable. They were completely used up with only 48,000 miles. Of course, my truck still rides like a one ton truck & that’s fine. I knew it would ride like that when I bought it, but the ride is so much better with the new Bilsteins.
Some of you may be wondering about cost so here it is. The turn key job including installation cost $435.00. Oh, I could have saved some money ordering the shocks form somewhere like Roc Auto or Summit Racing & installing them myself like I did with my last truck, but two recent surgeries have me under some restrictions so I can’t pull on any wrenches just yet & the shocks couldn’t wait. I’ve got some friends that would have been glad to help as well, but they are all busy recovering from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey or are helping others rebuild so I didn’t want to bother them.
Bottom line, Bilstein 5100 shocks and 4 Wheel Parts are both great & I wouldn’t hesitate doing business with either one of them again.
