The 5100's are a nice firm ride, they absorb the bumps very wells. It feels like a completely different Jeep. My Chiropractor recommended them and I couldn't be happier.

Here it is;
Kolak Performance and Offroad
Member: Specialty Equipment Market Association
Telephone: 480 998-3661
kolak@aol.com or kolak@kolakperformance.com

I don't think he has a website, you just call and tell him your application. Great guy and know's his stuff. I had my shocks with in a few weeks after ordering. I know he is closed on the weekends and returns phone calls on the following Monday. I paid $289 shipped for four 5100's for a Long Arm TJ. Cheapest any where I could find it.

I'm pretty sure the kolak deal is over but its worth a call. $289 shipped is a kick ass deal and yes kolak knows his stuff.
