Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks, the Perfect Addition to your Lift Kit or Leveling Kit
The Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks are designed specifically for your lifted vehicle. These shock absorbers feature a corrosion resistant zinc finish and vehicle specific valving. 5100 Series shocks use Bilstein's superior single tube high gas pressure design for consistent fade-free performance and long life. Bilstein's patented Digressive self-adjusting valving delivers improved damping control and a smooth ride for your Ford F250 on all road surfaces at any speed.

The Advantage of Bilstein's Monotube Design
Heat is one of the major detriments to the performance and longevity of any shock absorber. Conventional designed shocks trap the heat within the shock body and do not let it adequately dissipate, making them prone to heat build up, fade and eventual failure.

Bilstein's technically superior, monotube gas charged design allows the excessive heat from the oil to transfer to the outer surface of the shock body and dissipate more efficiently. Gas pressure on the dividing piston exerts force on the oil column which prevents aeration (foaming) and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain full damping characteristics under all conditions.

Note: Price shown is for (1) shock, quantity (2) shocks required for most applications.

Review Product
Rides Like an SUV
Although I was not sure whether I needed the shocks before purchase, the existing shocks appeared to be quite worn. I also purchased these shocks because I recently purchased the Bilstein steering damper of the same model. After removing the old shocks, I found one was bad in the rear and one was bad in the front. The installation is pretty straight forward. Remove the existing nuts/bolts and replace and/or use the hardware if supplied. On the rears, connect the top first because it's a fixed point on the chassis and then I used a Phillips screwdriver to align the bottom hole and inserted the bolt. On the fronts, the tops were finger tightened and then I used a jack to compress the shock to get it into place. You'll have to pull the shock cover into position. On the drive, the ride was quite smooth; firm but not harsh. On the dirt road, the ride was composed. All the shocks work in concert to make for a smooth and controlled ride. They also make taking curves, at speed, controlled and uneventful. The same can be said for trailering. A good step up from the Ranchos that I replaced.

Only minor issue I had with the shocks are the install. Other than that it is great! The ride hasn't really changed after the install.
