Bilstein started developing shocks for the automotive industry in 1957. This was the first year a monotube shock was an OEM feature on a production vehicle. Originally engineered as a safety standard, Bilstein shocks have evolved into other markets, including shocks for your lifted Jeep. Inspired by customer preferences and Bilstein’s involvement in various motorsports, Bilstein strives to provide a comfortable and durable shock for your application.
We at Extreme Terrain carry Bilstein’s 5100 series monotube gas shocks. These shocks carry the legacy of the original monotube and are engineered specifically for lifted rigs. These shocks are tuned to your submodel Wrangler to provide optimal ride performance. The multi-layered zinc finish is rust resistant for lasting durability. Bilstein also road tests these shocks to ensure a quality product.
Bilstein retains the idea of safety with 5100 series. The 5100 features gas pressure technology which keeps the oil under pressure to prevent foaming and premature shock failure when temperatures and loads are increased. No matter the conditions, this shock can handle the abuse and give your rig a quality ride.
