Fronts are GOOD to GO! Rears have a slight back order until mid/end of DEC. We have the 5125's as the replacement, Same Dimensions with a slight 10% increase on the valving in which you will NOT notice a thing. Nonetheless, Rears are EASY to put on once you get them. Let us know. Thanks!

Those shocks are proprietary to suspension manufacturer RCD and although made by Bilstein, not something we have access to.

I dont suggest those shocks normally as the stem on them seems to be a very weak point.

I have a 2004 FX4 Stepside/Flareside with what looks like a 2-4" plastic spacers up front and stock shocks? I just bought this last week but feel like it needs new suspension all the way around .... how would I know what I need to order? It has 35" tires on it now as you can see in the photo below, I wouldn't mind it sitting a little taller either?

Thanks for the review! Glad to hear they are working out for you. They are the best selling replacement shock for the Ford F150 and for good reason!
