Title: Rear Shocks
Post by: PitSnipe (Kyle) on January 19, 2014, 02:42:28 PM
The time has come for me to buy rear shocks. I have done a little research and thought I'd get your opinions.
I have 2" AAL and adjustable shackles. So what are my options? I have been looking at the Bilstein 5100. Am I headed in the right direction? Also where is a good place to buy them?

Call Greg at PRG Products www.prgproducts.com, you want Bilsteins or Radflo's if you have the cash and want to be fancy but the Bilsteins are great.

Tell Greg your exact setup and long term goals for your X and he will tell you what you need and answer any questions you may have, i.e. 1"-3" lift, 2"-4", 3"-5" and so on. Getting them from him they are already setup with the correct bushings, just bolt on.

He may take a day or two or three to get him on the phone but definitely worth the wait. When calling just call multiple times a day until he is available and/or answers, again may take a few days.

EDIT: Oh and by the way, your gonna eventually want to scrap your stock leafs with AAL's as they will flatten and get weak.

You then want an Alcan Custom Leaf Pack http://www.alcanspring.com/index.htm, they can make them any way you want, i.e. 2", 3", 4" of lift with 400, 450, 500, 550lbs over stock weight, basically $600 delivered to your door, well worth the cash!
