    Yes but how about you give us more information so we can give you a better answer; take pics of your rear lift IE u bolts, leaf springs, shackles.

    There are 2 types of Bilstein 5100 shocks and one is meant for minimal lift and the other for slightly more lift.

    Not that I was aware of. 5100s are good for 1-3" of lift in the back. 4600's for stock height.

    That said, OP: I suggest going to one of the many vendors on this site, or at least purchase your car parts from a retailer who specializes in vehicles. Amazon is cool for games and pens and stuff, but IMO car parts it's best to go to a truck/off-road specialist.

    That way, you can actually call them and talk to an actual human if you have questions or concerns about your order.

    Interesting. I had always seen them as for 1"-3" of lift. I see that the ones on wheelers are showing the 1.5-3" now.

    I knew they changed the fronts from a 3 to a 4 groove shock body at some point, guess it makes sense they changed the rears too.
