Shocks to go with 2" BB

I picked up a Teraflex 1.5 BB. It has 2 in spacers. What P/N Bilstein 5100 series would be the right front ones for that setup? I see only fronts for 0" or for much bigger than 2" for the front.

These look like the ones for the rear:

Bilstein, Rear, 5100 Series Gas Shock Absorber (For 0-2" Lift) BIL-BE24186827

But what about the front?

Any other brands that i might want look at? I've seen OME suggested as well.

The ones for the front are for 0-2" as well. I ordered all 4 from Kolak for just under $300 shipped.

Maybe JK shocks. I'm installing and doing a write up tomorrow. Likely will have to extend front bumpstops until I level with ZJ springs or similar.

Bump, only because threads get buried fast!

I answered your question already. Just order through Kolak and he will hook you up and make sure you get what you need.

I'm a bit concerned because the 0-2in Bilsteins really aren't much longer than stock.

True, but you aren't really gaining anything with spacers though other than looks. If you want you might be able to get 3" Blisteins if you plan on moving to new springs eventually.

Well, the distance between upper and lower shock mounts has been extended by the size of the lift. Therefore, the new shocks should be able to compensate for that under all circumstances.
