New Bilsteins installed

So I ordered new Bilstein 5100's from CT performance and got great deal and they shipped fast!! So here's so before and after pics. I think I deserve the award for worst shocks ever!! Like driving on a cloud now!!

The bushings were gone on the rears and all of them had no rebound!!






Out with the old!!



Thanks again Cary at CT Performance!!

Looking good! I currently have the same shocks you have, and will be ordering 5100's here soon... Are you running a lift or stock ride height?

Stock height, but they do fit lifted trucks. I actually was going to buy blue and yellows but you can't find the rears in stock because bilstein is moving their factory and not producing more is what I heard

Bilsteins run that way . If you flipped them the drain holes for the boots would be up and lettering upside down!

Will these work with an RSK and for stock applications, too? They ride better?
