suspension question

I have been pondering getting all 4 Bilstien HD shocks for my WK. But I have been reading that most just do the rear shocks. If I do the BDS 2" lift could Im just get the rear Bilstiens and be good since the BDS kit pre loads the front shocks a bit?

Re: suspension question

IMHO I would just switch them all out the stock shocks are only good for about 50K miles initially, since you're gonna get the lift kit in there just put the shocks for the front as wel while you got it all unhooked.

Re: suspension question

Good call DJ. I was thinking the same thing. But did not know the stock shocks are only good up until 50k! I am brushing up on 42k but I am going to change them all anyways to the HD ones. Anyone know how the ride os with the BDS 2 inch lift and Bilstiens?

Re: suspension question

If your lifting her, go with OME rears. It makes no sense on replacing the shocks with same extended length as the stock shocks.
