Bilstein 4600

I've placed my order for Bilstein 4600. Should be dropped shipped to my local shop in 3-6 weeks from Bilstein. Looking forward to seeing difference in ride quality on my 2014 GC Limited 5.7 hemi.

Keep us posted with your review. Lots here would probably be interested. I have a set sitting in my basement, waiting to get my RM Mids ordered

Re: Bilstein 4600

Ordered rear 4600's today. Will these shocks lower the rear at all?

The rear stayed the same ride height. Hope this helps you. Love the ride quality and handling with new Bilstein on front and back.

Re: Bilstein 4600

My rear dropped an inch with the 4600s but they replaced OEM Nivomat shocks.

The wait was worth it. Night and day difference in ride and handling. Front suspension still has to settle down its higher than before. Take with full tank of gas to have weight when alignment is done.

Re: Bilstein 4600

So, you just put the bilstein shocks with OEM springs rights? And didn't drop any " on the rear?

Looking for a mid drop with SRT prings and bilstein shocks but if the shocks doesn't really drop anything, will try just the srt spring with OEM shocks until they get bad and then replace them with the 4600.
