Best blistein for the buck

Which of this would be best for our jeeps? I don't want no lift out of it, just if I'm going to spend I want something that's going to last me and give me a good ride I was looking at the 5100 series

Re: Best blistein for the buck

Installed Bilsteins on my WJ shortly after purchase - IIRC around 85k miles on the odometer. I am currently showing almost 140k and love them. They were an instant improvement but I was really happy with my choice when I paired them with the Mopar UpCountry springs and new isolators. I don't recall which ones I got and I cannot find the info. I got them on another Kolak on one of the other Jeep forums.

Re: Best blistein for the buck

Yea saw those too, thinking of getting the ones a step above those from Autozone since they offer the limited lifetime warranty but they say that there a 3inch lift

Re: Best blistein for the buck

Well, if you are lifted those are the ones that you need. These are lifetime warranty stock replacements. IIRC the only difference is the 5100s are for a lifted ride and 4700s are for stock.

Lifetime warranty? Manufacturers?

Re: Best blistein for the buck

Bilstein are lifetime warranty, the series depends on if vehicle is stock height or lifted.

Re: Best blistein for the buck

Just for interest, I'm thinking of replacing the suspension all around and the springs... however, I want more of a car feel as it spends 99% of it's time on the road in UK. What springs and Bilstein would you guys reccomend for a 2003 WJ? I want to remove the wallowing into corners really and give a more car like ride.

Re: Best blistein for the buck

4700s - I suspect the wallering in the corners is more related to wear in suspension parts. New lower control arms in the front and rear helped my WJ. I also know the upper center ball joint and a arm bushings need replaced to complete the work.
