I order a set of bilstein 5100 for my TJ. I was sent for the rear 24-86827 which are correct. But for the front i was sent 24-185622 which are for a Cherokee. I was told they will fit my 2" lift application but I am concerned that they will be too stiff since they are for an XJ. Does anyone know if the valving is much different between them?

Does anyone know where I can find spring rates for the different Bilstein part numbers? Maybe that will give me an idea if they are going to be too stiff.

XJs are more or less the same weight upfront as a TJ. I ran TJ shocks in my old XJ no issues.

Good to know. I looked up the weights and the XJ is only about 100-150lbs more per axle so 50 lbs per shock. I am sure I will never notice the difference.
