Default Bilstein 5100s are the way to go for F150 replacment offroad shocks.

Hi F150 Forum members,

Chas from TAP Auto Parts back with another special just for F150Forum.com members.

Looking to upgrade you suspension for trail use but dont want to break the bank? Wanting to fit a leveling kit on your truck to fit bigger tires?

The #1 selling replacement upgrade shock for the Ford F150, the Bilstein 5100 is an easy way to improve your F150's handling, ride, offroad capabilities as well as providing you multiple snap-ring grooves in the shock body that allow for different spring seat positions, providing 0"-2.5" of front end lift. Forget leveling kits, improve the suspension while lifting the front end with Bilstein 5100 ride height adjustable shocks.

I use them on my truck and can say that the ride seems firmer/tighter without being too stiff. The handling and steering is much improved, while the ride is much smoother and the ability to soak up speed bumps or potholes is much better. Offroad, the shocks are so much better then factory I wonder why they didnt go to Bilstein first.

Normally priced at $390 a set delivered, grab a COMPLETE SET OF 4 for only 345 delivered with the promocode "F150FORUM"

We do have shocks for that application and we can ship to Germany. Although Bilstein is in Germany and a lot of items are produced there, all of the 4600 & 5100 truck shocks are manufactured in Kentucky, USA. We could work out a shipping quote for you if you would like, just email or pm your address to us and we will get you setup!

I had 5100's on my 2WD Tundra for over 80,000 miles and they worked flawlessly. Had them at the 2.5" setting, the stock setting, and then the middle setting. No problems ever. I am seriously considering putting them on my new '13 4x4 SCrew but will they at the 2.25" setting clear 35x12.50 tires without fender trimming on the stock 18" wheels?

Its going to be close, on the highest setting it can be done. Depends on the tire brand.

Ordered mine from you last week and tracking shows they will be here tomorrow! For anyone on the fence, they are a great upgrade from stock and IMO a better way to level the F-150 than spacer kits. TAP Auto was great to deal with so far and the communication through the process has been great.
