**Note: These shocks may only be used for specific applications. Due to the variations in lift kit manufacturers’ systems, it is the responsibility of the installer/end user to confirm that the shocks are dimensionally correct. Most lift kits require lowered bump stops to compensate for longer shocks mounted into the OEM location. BILSTEIN will not be liable for damage caused by a full compression impact of the shock absorber.
