IMHO, save your money, look at the Monroe Reflex. It's a very good HD Lifetime Gas shock that is 1/3 the price. I got 4 shocks and the steering stabilizer from Amazon for @$150

I agree with NoRalPh, before i lifted my truck i installed Monroe shocks. I really dont remember exactly which ones i got but they were the nitrogen filled shocks. I loved them... made for a really smooth ride. only reason i went with Bilstein 5100 is because of the lift. couldnt find the monroe's in the length i needed. If i remember correctly i paid around $40 to $50ea for the monroe, maybe even a little less. The Bilstein cost $83ea. Not saying the Bilstein 5100s arent good.. because they are ... for a lifted truck with oversized tires, but the Monroe's work great for a stock setup. Just my opinion
