Bilstein 5100 Series Adjustable Struts
 
Has anyone ran the Bilstein 5100 Series adjustable struts? I am in need of replacing my struts on my WK anyway and will be looking to get my lift installed at the same time. Just curious if anyone has any input on these struts. Thanks!

I just pu them on all four corners of my 2014 GC Limited V6 and can say there was a definite ride quality improvement. What may be the best part is the increase in wheel travel. The Bilsteins definitely have a longer shaft and appear to have more travel. I just put them on and haven't had a chance to jack it up and measure the difference in droop wheel travel. I also removed my sway bars and like it so far. I set them at the 1.25" lift setting and it perfectly leveled the vehicle. I had about 1.75" of lift for the first day or two but did some off roaring and then it settled to 1.25" of lift so it was a good thing I water a couple days to get an alignment. Probably the best money spent to improve your jeep.. along with tires and weather tech digital fit Floor Liners.
