5100 vs 5125 vs 5150

Looking for some rear shock experiences. I wanna hear from folks who have run two or more of the different billy's. Can u guys actually feel a difference between them? I will be picking up a set when I return from my upcoming deployment. Thanks TW.

Most differences are the length, and the resi. the 5150 has the resi, while the 5125 is the same as the 5100, just availible in different lengths. They are all valved at the same 255/140 (Rebound/compression)

Not trying to thread jack.. but if I was going with the 5100s w/ Eibachs up front.. would it make a difference to have 5150s in the rear instead of the 5100s. Thanks!

I want to know if Bilsteins are as good as Fox Shox. I have had great performance from Fox on motorcycles and heavy mountain biking..

Bumping an old thread with a new question, which I think Chris answered but want to make sure...

The 5150s come in 6.5" and 8.5" of travel. If I am running a stock leaf pack without the TSB, can I run these shocks?

Just go with the bilstein 5160 there new and I've heard good things about them. They cost around 400 bucks
