So I ordered the RC 2 inch lift today, now does anyone have the part number for the right size bilstein 5125 shock? is the 33-230344 (15.9 to 25.9) the right one for the rear, with 2 inch lift? What about front? thanks in advance......

talked to bilstein, they recommend 33-185552, yet they have nothing that will match/fit up front. anyone have any sugestions for front? to match 5125 Series 10" travel (col 15.91" ext 25.93") valving 255/70......? something to match that travel with 360/80 valving?

If you want bilsteins up front, They offer their adjustable strut. It uses the factory coil, with an adjustable perch which compresses the spring. Heres the part number. They adjust from .75 to two inches of lift.. In this case, you would not use the front part of the lift.. Only the rear spacers. http://www.quadratec.com/products/16070_1042.htm

Matt that's the part number that I'm running with my rear Superlift springs. I don't think I have maxed out the travel yet and I don't have my rear sway bar on. I think he would be better off with the part number Bilstein gave him as he only has the RC lift (33-185552)

Old Man Emu struts would work or Bilstein also has a strut

The length of the shocks bilstein recommended will limit travel even with the RC lift. I ran 28" shocks with my spacer lift, OME lift amd now SL springs. If he's not lookin to flex it out offroad then yeah the 26" shocks are fine. But for maximum travel offroad, 28-28.5 is where you want to be (and 31 for the SL)
