It reeked of new tire, and for some reason it wasn't that nice new rubber smell... they put some coating on it which smells bad.... Although the smell is gone so thats good....

I just made an offer on some 5100 shocks on ebay, looking to save like 200 dollars compared to summit....

What brand coils are yours again? I'm looking for 4" superlifts

Alright so small update, My 4" superlift coils shipped out yesterday, and I just paid for my front and rear bilstein 5100's today....

Now I am looking at the Aux shocks, and if I am correct, the P/N for the 5100 aux is F4-BE5-6238-H5

Which leads me to this

http://www.shockwarehouse.com/site/p...fhu=3135303136


I'm thinking of ordering two, unless theirs a good reason why I should do 5150 front aux?

I just bought the mile marker premiums w/ conversion from JBG for $85.

You can always buy any old D44 warn premiums and then get the conversion pieces...which is just a few locknuts.

I can even give you the JBG part # for the auto conversion specific parts.


I get my Spicer stuff from rockauto.com and I've been told that NAPA's house brand stuff is reboxed spicer, but that could be incorrect.

I dont trust JBG with all the complaints about them on this site, just dont want to get a screwed up order....



I checked on rock auto and they didnt have any, they had raybesto, AC delco and a couple others... And I've heard that about NAPA brand to but im not 100% positive on it either

I've spent a few thousand with JBG and have not had one issue, JMHO.

You can get any D44 lockout then and NAPA carries the conversion parts that you need. I just came across the part #s in a thread I was reading earlier.


For the BJs, I'd go into NAPA and have them bring out a set. Open the box and they'll probably be marked Spicer.


I've also heard tales of Autozone carrying spicer parts.

My coils came today! I'm abit upset about the shocks because they have been rescheduled to show up tomorrow

Anyways, these coils are beefy as hell, box probably weighs 40lbs. They are 19" long compared to the stock ones which, on my truck, measured 10"


Here are some pics, thanks to amazons super saver shipping i didnt have to pay 30 dollars to ship them
