Rear shocks for superlift
 
does anyone know the part number for bilsteins compatible with a wk with a superlift?

Also any other suggestions for smoother riding rear shock than what comes with the superlift kit?

Go here and give these guys a call. They should be able to match the 5100 they are showing but in a longer length for the Superlift.

Where are you at in NJ??

PN 33-104652 is a 5125 (255/70 valving) that has the same lengths as the superlift. You may need two 7/16 washers on each top mount.

Do you go wheeling? If you want to maximize travel you can go with longer rear shocks (~31" extended).

Thanks bud I'll take a look at them.

I live and work in Ocean County. I mostly do beach driving, but the real reason for the lift is I work right where Hurricane Sandy made its left turn into NJ. The town is a disaster still, constant road construction and flooding. Everyone around here is lifting anything they have. The superlift is awesome but the rear shocks are garbage. I have Bilsteins in the front and they are great, just looking to match them in the rear. Here is the post Sandy picture of my town.

Damn. Maybe this would be better than some shocks.

Sorry to hear about where you live. I know this all to well. When I lived in Indiana a few years back, my apartment was underwater from the flooding that happened in June 7th, 2008. I lost everything. FEMA was no help, and I did not have the flood insurance, as that's through the government, not underwritten by who did my renters insurance. I still get nervous anytime it starts to rain a lot and does not seem to let up. I remember that water coming up from the floor, hearing the loud gurgling sounds just before it came right up through the tub, washer area and sinks. It was up to my chest inside the apartment in 20 minutes. I swam out. One of the worst days in my life. I am glad you survived. I have been deployed twice, and the flood put more fear in me than either tour. Cell pic is one I got on the dingy going through a neighborhood to dry land. I have a .pdf of the newspaper I made also.
