    70k is getting about the time to get new shocks. The Bilstein 5100s are longer to work with your aal also. Unfortunately the Rear 5100s for your truck are on a backorder at Bilstein at this time.

    The labels might say it, but the ones I rode on were progressive.

    :rolleyes:They are split linear :rolleyes:

    Between almost 100K of post between the two of you I figured I would post the correct answer ;)

    I am not sure it really matters, they soak up what is needed and handle corners when called upon.

    Under 200 posts and stating the truth :poking:

    I am just messing with you guys.

    I am too new here. Just stating you guys make me chuckle going back and forth as to what the pressure and valving is on a 5100.

    You can call them whichever you like and it will still be the most common mod on TW.

    I have a set of Bilstein 5100's for the rear from DSM for sale. They're about a year old. Ended up removing the AAL from my truck so I put the stock shocks back on. PM me if interested. Asking $120 plus shipping.
