NOTE: Bilstein Shock Absorbers are sold as individual units. If you need a pair of shocks, increase the quantity desired to 2.

Considered the leader in monotube gas pressure shock technology, Bilstein has designed this remote reservoir shock to easily install in the stock front shock location on '94-'13 4WD Dodge Ram pickups - no cutting or welding required.

These shocks feature Bilstein's industry leading monotube design with unique digressive valving system that instantly produces full damping capability. The remote reservoir dramatically increases shock oil capacity for greater heat dissipation and damping sensitivity.

The reservoir mounting configuration is designed specifically for each vehicle application. The "floating" dividing piston is location in the reservoir for increased wheel travel and more shaft movement. They look impressive as well, with Bilstein's exclusive Triple-C Technology finish providing not only easy care, but lasting great looks.

Each shock is sold individually and includes a reservoir mounting kit and detailed instructions.

NOTE: Designed for use on trucks with stock ride height up to 2" lift.

NOTE: Designed for off-road use. 90-day manufacturer warranty.

As always, great service from Geno's! Easy install. Bilstein is quality all the way, and even better, made in the USA now. Really impressed how the ride quality is with these shocks. It was the last upgrade on my '01 2500 after rebuilding the whole front end with Synergy MFG parts. Will be purchasing the rear 5160s soon!

Excellent ride. My truck weighs 8200# with a service bed on it. I already had new 5100 shocks in the rear. With these front shocks I picked up 2" of travel. I took it out to the desert and the ride is pretty damn good for not going full carli/thuren. Able to actually drive through whoops at more than 2 mph. Note these shocks allow more down travel on the passenger side than the factory track bar ball joint can handle. So if you plan to drive hard you should fix the trac bar or ad a limit strap.
