    Just passing along a good deal on 3rd Gen 5100s....

    4 Wheel Parts has the fronts for $103.65
    https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/bilstein-5100-ride-height-adjustable-series-shock-absorber/prod840023

    And the rear 5100s (bought from 4WP on ebay) were $67.45
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bilstein-5100-Series-Shock-Absorber-24-186728/173757792028?epid=112620076

    Cheapest I've seen them. With the 6112s & 8100s out now, they may be phasing the 5100s out, I don't know. But I know these will serve me just fine. I've had 5100s on the last 2 trucks I've owned, this being the 3rd, and have had 0 complaints.

    5100's are great entry level shock, was a goto for my Jeeps and did well.

    I think they are both for single units, meaning to buy all 4 parts would be roughly $342. Still a great price! Headstrong Offroad also offers the all around 5100 package for $339.99.

    The 5100 set is definitely an upgrade I'm going to make someday soon.

    I didn't realize Headstrong had the set for $340. I've been piece-mealing parts as my play money affords. But having a wife, 2 teenage daughters and a mortgage keep most of my play money tied up. It's hard to rathole money back when your kids need stuff or the hot water heater takes a dump.

    Yeah I hear you on that, most of the extra money goes to house projects here as well. But I’m hoping I’ll get the 5100 set ordered soon and then find someone to help me install, or rather I help them haha. I’ve heard lots of good things about headstrong from different threads here. Plus my local shop would charge me at least $450 for the same setup so I’m not gonna go that route.
