Bilsteins are the best out there for a daily driven rig, IMHO. There are other good shocks out there but the Bilsteins are the best.

Bilsteins hands down. The 5100s are better than any of the lift company shocks and their 7100s all they way to the 9300 BlackHawks are the best available up to a 3.0.

5100s good for a stock ride height? I know they say 0-2in of lift? I think I may do a set in a year or less, to get some nice ride
