Unhappy Question about shocks?

I recently acquired the Rough Country lift with my WK. Now My shocks and struts are shot... From my understanding with the Struts you do not have to go up in size(length) you can use factory size struts However with the shocks do I have to go with bilsteins longer shocks or can I use the 4600`s instead of the 5100`s? please help rough over bumps.

Re: Question about shocks?

with that lift youll be fine on eighter shock. however the 5100's do give you some height adjustability

Question about shocks?

I ran the 4600 series Bilstein's in my '08 WK with an RC lift for over 5 years with no issues at all. The ride wasn't perfect but it was good enough for daily driving.

Re: Question about shocks?

Okay that is good to know thank you. Would you say the shocks are also good enough to go trail riding with?
