FS: pair of Bilstein 5100 for TJ/XJ (KS)

I have the set of shocks that came off my jeep. They are in perfect working order. The bushings are in great shape as well. They are dirty from being on my jeep. I don't know what those damn Germans were thinking when they made these a brushed finish. They could probably use a coat of paint but guaranteed to work on your junk. They are listed for a RE 5.5 TJ long arm but I had them installed on my RE 3.5s. Plenty of bumpstop so they were never over compressed. New they were 125/each. They still list for 136/each. I'm asking 125.00 shipped anywhere in the US.

Here is the Bilstein link.

and the shocks.



PM me here or email me at mr.clifford@thedoubleduke.com if you have any questions. Located in Wichita, KS.

They don't compare. They are in a whole different class than a Skyjacker.

Wow and being that the picture shows TWO instead of FOUR. But I guess it wasn't that obvious.

Someone pointed out a cheaper place to get these shocks so I have cut the price back to 100 shipped.

100 shipped for both. These are the best riding shocks you can put on the front of your wrangler. If you are running the RC shocks that came in your kit I promise you 10 fold for a better ride.

x2

bilsteins are probably better than stock

and i know that when i put my stock shocks back on (with shock extenders) it rides a heck of a lot better than it did with the shocks that came with the lift (shocks that came with my lift are probably similar to the RC shocks or a little better)
