Need help choosing shocks

Postby HkB115 » Thu Sep 21, 2017 11:43 pm

Hello everyone.
I'm looking to get some new shocks for my custom lift. The lift is overall around 14" and my superlift shocks are POS. Hitting speed bumps at 10 mph is enough to rock everything around. I'm considering getting some Bilstein 5100 or 5165 but I'm not entirely sure what would be best for the height of my lift. Some pics below.

I would go with the Bilsteins for sure. You'll have to measure the distance between mounting points and also take into account for total suspension flex in order to pick the right length shocks. They should list the extended and collapsed measurements. Just make sure you sont go too short or you'll ruin them pretty quick.
