Upgrade Your Ride with Bilstein 5160-B8 Shock Absorbers

The stock shock absorbers on most trucks are designed for optimal highway performance. However, if you plan to drive a loaded truck at typical highway speeds with a side by side on the truck rack and pulling an RV trailer behind, you'll need a shock absorber upgrade to ensure the best front and rear shock response to the highway and city street potholes and road cracks. This is also essential when driving off-road and back trails over rough terrain and rocks

To address this need, we suggest the installation of 5160 B8 Bilstein Shocks - two in the front and two in the rear. This shock absorber upgrade will provide you with the level of suspension protection you need at a reasonable price, and offer a much better shock response than factory shocks. With these shocks, you can enjoy a smoother and safer ride both on and off the road.
