We have these in two different versions. We have the original BE5-C477-T1 shock that has been around for years (built by Bilstein exclusively for Race Car Dynamics) as well as the new 24-239370 available directly from Bilstein. Upon inspection, we found that these two shocks appear identical.
BILSTEIN B8 5100 (Ride Height Adjustable) shock absorbers are designed for front coilover style pickup and SUV suspensions. With the use of multiple snap ring grooves to position the spring seat at different heights, the vehicle's ride height can be changed anywhere between 0-2.75" depending on application. 5100 Series shocks feature Bilstein's superior single tube high gas pressure design for the utmost in consistent fade-free performance and long life.
Bilstein's patented Digressive self-adjusting valving delivers improved damping control and a smooth ride on all road surfaces at any speed. Offering super damping ability that makes them ideal for heavy hauling or occasional off-road use, while maintaining an exceptional street ride. Zinc-plated steel body with Triple-C-Technology coating.
These high performance Bilstein front struts have 4 spring seat positions you can choose that provide approximately 0-2.5" of lift in increments. They work with your factory coils although some customers run them with some of the performance coils we carry as well.
Good for lifting, leveling or compensating for winches, snowplows, etc. Performance valved to provide better handling. We can assemble coils on these for easy installation, see that option below.
The struts don’t come with new stem cushions or washers; you can re-use your existing cushions and washers or we offer new ones.
