Bilstein 4600

I didn't want my back to drop. My front has to settle down its higher than it used to be. Mine has no tow package.

Re: Bilstein 4600

If I wanted to lower my car, level it and improve the ride would the SRT springs plus bilstein 4600s to replace the factory OEM shocks be the answer?

Re: Bilstein 4600

Excuse my interruption but what is the difference between the 4600 & 5100's.
I know the 5100's are adjustable but is there any other significant differences.

The 5100's are stiffer as well and about 3/8ths of an inch longer

Re: Bilstein 4600

Running OEM coils, and had the load-leveling shocks out back because of the tow package.
The result is the front is now higher but the rear is an inch lower, like Mofsteel said. IMO it sits more to my liking, nice and level now.

Now that it's been a few months, did the front ever settle down? I put 4600 struts on the factory springs and got at least a 1" lift from it. Wondering if this will go away, or something I need to fix (or ignore).

Mine has not. Thinking about putting the OEM fronts back on soon.

Hell, the wife liked it stock, sooo, I may be swapping them all at the same time, or do the rears myself to save a little $$$.

It's her Jeep... "happy wife = happy life"

LOL, smart. If it helps any: I put my rear Bilsteins on first and drove with the stock fronts. You may want to try keeping the rear bilsteins. The difference is pretty subtle from stock rears. The fronts make the most difference.

Re: Bilstein 4600

For everyone who put the 4600 front struts on factory springs, did it lift the front about an inch?
