I just finished installing Rusty's 2" lift. We went for a test ride and the replacement shocks they supplied for the back are TERRIBLE!
It rides like one of those old Caddy's you see. It takes about six bounces to settle down. I am putting the original ones on in the morning.

Can someone point me to where I could buy some Bilsteins? I've searched and read alot about them here but cannot find where to purchase them. If someone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Other than that I really like the lift. Just need some bigger tires now.

You might have gotten faulty shocks. I've got the rusty's on the rear and one bounce and it settles.

4.7 is running bilsteins. Maybe he might beable to chime in and let you know where he got his at.

Also, he sales the 7100's on his Weg Page.

There are a few choices for the rear.

Things to consider for rear shocks. Do you have a lift? What length of shock travel do you want? Extended Length and Collapsed length? What valving do you want?
