Shocks and struts

Can anyone tell me what the part # is for Bilstein 5100 shocks and struts? And would these be good if I have a 2.25 inch lift already?

I just installed the 33-225807s on mine and I LOVE THEM. But I'm fairly certain I read somewhere they were only good to 2 inches of lift.

You need the Bilstien 5125 series. Though I can't promise which one. Here's a link:

Do some Googling and you'll likely come up with the answer. I did, but I didn't need the longer ones and have since forgotten.

Ya, I think you're right. But, I think everyone uses those with the less-than-4" lifts? or the Monroe Load Adjust...maybe someone else can chime in?

These are the 4" lift ones for the rear: 33-186009

Rear Shock Stats:
Stock
Compressed: 15.3"
Extended: 24.3"

Monroe 58643
Compressed: 16.6"
Extended: 27.5"

33-225807
Compressed: 15.3"
Extended: 24.7"

33-186009
Compressed: 16.7"
Extended: 27.1"

So, given those numbers, maybe I was wrong in my first post and the 33-186009 for the rears is the correct for your lift height.
The fronts (24-225793) should be good until you go higher than 4"
