    My truck has 2100 miles on it. I’m debating on changing out the stock shocks to the Bilstein 5100’s that I can get on eBay for $279 from Downsouth Motorsports. I don’t drive off road but I do regularly drive on a very rough un-maintained road. I’d leave the front at the stock height. So should I wear out the stock shocks or get the new one’s installed and get it over with? Or should I consider some other shock? I have a regular cab 4x4.

    Do it! The 5100's are MUCH better than the OEM shocks.
