Heres a simple question:

You have a dual steering stabilizer setup. The stabilizers are not gas charged. Would installing identical stabilizers in their place that are gas charged cause an issue or not work as well?

FYI, I'm looking to install Bilstein 5100s in place of cheap white Rough Country dual steering stabilizer shocks.

No, you cannot(I am 99%).

The valving is different. Bilstein DOES make a 5100 series steering stabilizer though...

I remember seeing on some off the shelf gas charged shocks, that they NEED to be kept upright, no laid over...(do not remember 100% though)....

Anyway, you dont want something thats valved for controlling 3000 lbs+ to use as a stab....

ALSO, Fox Shocks, F-O-A, and Sway-A-Way make nice steering stabs as well....

My 2 cents...

Steering stabilizer shocks are valved the same compression and rebound, other shocks are not.
As far as I know Bilstein doesn't sell a 5100 SS they may sell them to others that re-brand them. I know they make SS for motor homes and a few other trucks.
