I got mine from shox.com; all four shipped were $24X.XX...they had a deal going buy three get one free. just checked their site and its $315 shipped so $122 for the rears is a fine price!

I got that beat. I got my Bilstein front struts for $80 each when i bought then with my employee discount through Autozone $160 total for both fronts with free shipping. I did not buy the Bilstein rears because i am using a custom Bilstein 5100 rear shock instead.

how important is it to get an alignment after adding billys? lets say you add maybe 1in overall including the billys...at what amount of lift do you need to do a realignment for the new angles and such?

Re: bilstein shocks
 
good question, im getting an alignment after i do mine because i also recently put on new sway bars and links. i think you should get one after putting on new shocks that are not the same as OEM.

Re: bilstein shocks
 
alignment needed when you do the front shocks as you are taking the suspension apart. you need to remove the upper ball joint and other things. once you touch all that stuff an alignment is necessary.

Re: bilstein shocks
 
what if i did a 1/2" spacer. doesnt require any dissambly of the strut so would i need an alignment after that?

Re: bilstein shocks
 
well I guess I should have but I never did an got an alignment after the WK bilsteins/SRT8 sways/BWoody sway links...had the set-up now for 8K+ miles, tires rotated twice with no un-even wear, no pull L or R at low and freeway speeds...maybe I got lucky?
