Bilstein are great, and got a miss. Can anyone help?
 
I just got my WK Bilsteins in friday. Put the rear ones on at work yesterday, and they make a huge difference. Can't wait to get the fronts on. I guess i'm gonna get my mechanic to do those.
Also, my jeep has developed a small miss or hesitation, going uphill at low rpm. Any ideas what that may be?
Another thing,, how tight did u guys put the bolts on the rear shocks. Dont have a torque wrench, but the bolts did not want to come out or go back in. I had a time getting them back in with a regular short ratchet. Should i tighten them as tight as i can get them?

I tightened mine as tight as it can get really no need for specs

I did the front ones myself too with the help of my friend it took a little longer and require taking off the rotors and whole knee

No Scott. No records except for some tire receipts and such. Oil change receipts. And I've got just over 60k.

Nice to see someone local on here. I am in Pike County.

Have you tried new plugs yet for the miss?

its really easy to do youerself too. Just unbolt the coil pack, pull off, remove old plug, install new plug, push coil paack on, bolt it in and move to the next one. Use all the proper greases, tq wrench etc. as well....
