Bilstein Leveling Shocks
The 5100 Series Leveling Shock will allow for 1-2” more up-travel than a strut extension. As for the droop or down-travel, the extended length of the shock also allows for more overall travel. The goal is to maximize wheel travel without inducing any ball joint or driveline bind. What Bilstein has found in most cases is that the OEM manufacturers have designed a coilover unit using a short travel shock with long shock body. What this means is we can increase the extended length of the shock without effecting the collapsed length. With the 5100 Series Leveling Shock is installed, you will gain more wheel travel while maintaining the factory compression stops. The lift on the 5100 Series leveling shocks is achieved by increasing the preload on the factory coil. By adding more preload, the shock is designed with more rebound damping as compared to the O.E. or standard aftermarket replacement shock. Considering that Bilstein is the world leader in monotube gas pressure shocks absorbers, we are in the unique position to offer a leveling shock with the perfect damping rates, optimizing your ride and handling characteristics. The result is a much smoother and better controlled ride than the factory coilover set up can deliver. Bilstein 5100 Series Leveling Shocks offer multiple spring seat positions for ride height adjustment ranging from stock height up to 2.75”, depending on the application. This allows you to select the right amount of lift needed to achieve the look you desire. To change the ride height, you simply need to move the external snap ring into the desired position. The spring seat is then indexed over the snap ring, encapsulating it for maximum strength. Rear Shocks: In addition to the front leveling shocks, Bilstein offers a matched set of rear 5100 Series shocks to complete the tuned system. The addition of the rear shocks will offer an excellent balance to your vehicle. You may be able to “get by” with just doing the front leveling shocks but you will need the rears for the ultimate system and maximum performance. The Rear 5100 Series shocks will also accommodate up to a 1.5” lift but are Not Height Adjustable if an extended shackle, block, add-a-leaf, or a new spring pack has been added on your vehicle. Reuse OE Coil.
