Remote reservoir in rear?

Hey everyone. I just installed the bilstein 5160 shocks on my front end yesterday and am extremely happy with the performance. Night and day difference. Truck recovers from bumps quickly and doesn't rock. I am curious if you all think it is worth it to put these in the rear also. Maybe I could just put the 5100's on the rear and use the the extra money elsewhere. Appreciate everyone's input.

if you plan to keep the truck and your kidneys , do the 5160. the valving is more specific and should have similar results to the front....if done correctly, they should be more specific to your trucks spring rate.

just getting some info is free, plenty of guys at both to explain what valving the would select....?

you will definitely notice a difference, my last dodge received a 2.0 system from carli, and it rocked.....had I kept the truck , it would be on 2.65's by now.

True. I'll check into it. Maybe they will talk me into it. Lol.

the only issue is the limited selection... you can go the route of custom tuning (like our shocks) but they're tuned around our spring rates so we cannot predict how it will ride with stock springs. My recommendation would be to go with off-the-shelf 5160s until you're ready to roll into a complete suspension system. The off-the shelf 5160s seem to be reviewed quite well!

Sounds like a good plan. I only tow a few times a year and the bed stays unloaded except for misc stuff here and there.
