I have the 'no-load' front springs but I'm about to install the medium-load springs because I'm running the full mopar and chief underbody protection packages and I still don't have the ground clearance I'm looking for.

I'm happy to answer any questions for anyone else interested in the OME package.
I am thinking about purchasing the medium load kit. Did you get a full 2" out of it. Someone told me it's actually closer to a 2.5" lift. Is there any truth to this? Can you post a few pictures please

Alludc: It depends on what your setup is

If you are doing Eibach lift springs you can do all 4 corners with 5100 series Bilstein

If you are using RRO's lift kit then you can combo 4600 front and 5100 back

Re: RRO 2.5" lift vs Eibach All Terrain Lift Kit vs Old Man EMU - longevity

I have the load leveling shocks (I don't really tow), do I lose anything other than the leveling feature if I use the Bilstein 24-225441?

Re: RRO 2.5" lift vs Eibach All Terrain Lift Kit vs Old Man EMU - longevity

Bilstein suggested I try a 24-225793 5100 up front.
I assume they just didnt know how the RRO kit works. If I were to use that, it would raise me another .4" and throw my geometry past max...correct?

Plain and simple if you are using RRO's spacers - Do not get 5100 series up front. If I had to guess, the person on the phone probably assumed you had lift springs on the Jeep.

Re: RRO 2.5" lift vs Eibach All Terrain Lift Kit vs Old Man EMU - longevity

I did order and the 4600 is on backorder til Nov so he was making alternate suggestions...

The 4600ís for the front are back ordered until November. The 5100ís for the rear are limited in quantity but should be able to ship. I strongly recommend the 5100 Ride-Height Adjustable for the front of the vehicle. Snap rings on the body of the shock allow you to adjust the level of lift. This 5100 ride height adjustable is in stock and ready to ship. Here is some more information on spacers vs BILSTEIN Ride Height Adjustment:



I am trying to let them know that the spacer is mounted outside the factory strut

I placed my order for the adjustable ride height 5100 and a regular set for the rear. I'm excited to get it in and have it installed.
