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
Now I remember you were the one to first tell me about the different warranty !

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.
