Got my Bilstein 5100 Shocks in today!!
Anyone have any suggestions, tips, or little tricks for me to use when installing these?? I have heard the stories of breaking off the mounting bolts, and hope that i don't have to mess with this ordeal!! Any suggestions would be very appreciated. thanks!!

my only suggestion is unbolt the old shocks and then install the new shocks. ;)

thats all i can give as i didn't have any problems with mine :D

Cool! I can't answer your question but I'll be interested in knowing how well you like them. :)

Thanks Bigjeep very helpful post!! I hope that it is a simple process like it very well should be. I just hope I dont have any bolts break on me like some have had. And Scout, I will be sure to give my opinion when I get them installed!!

shocks are nothing to install... just be sure the e-brake is on and the wheels have blocks behind them so it wont move at all. Blast everything with PB-Blaster a good few hours before hand and it should be easy as pie. :D

Thanks, yeah I knew it should be a simple project, hopefully it will be!!
