    Evening family....it appears I am in need some new rear shocks. I recently noticed an oily residue all over the driver's side rear shock. After 14 years and 100,000 miles, I'm not even upset. They've paid me back many years over.

    I am in the market for 2 Bilstein 24185394 (4600's).

    Amazon has them for $62.66 each shipped to my door. I know some of you have some great pricing on suspension parts and I would like to give business to a forum brother if possible. I've also noticed places like Shock Warehouse occasionally partner with various forums to provide member pricing on their products.

    Steer me in the right direction if either of the two above apply in this case.

    :thumbsup:

    Rolo, I would consider paying $20 more per shock and upgrading to the Bilstein 5100's . There are a few vendors here that carry them. Bilstein 5100's front and rear will set ya back around $450. I know your looking for just the rear, just giving you a price point . :thumbsup:

    Time to upgrade for sure! Minimal cost gets you OME nitrochargers or Bilstein 5100s

    4600 does not hold a candle to the 5100 . For the minimal cost to get the better shocks you might wish you did that years ago.

    With 14 years and 100K miles on the shocks you may want to look at replacing the front as well.

    I agree the 5100's are superior to the 4600's. However, in this case (and I can't believe I'm about to say this) the absolute best is not necessary in this PARTICULAR application.
    The 4600's will be far superior to the original wore out ones, and I'll likely be moving into a new truck in the next 2 years.

    Thanks for the considered feedback though. This is the one time in my life that I do not feel the need to buy the BEST side of the good, better, best scale.

    They're the same shock internally... unless he's leveling makes no sense.. I don't understand the superior comments

    Spitfire, I read that during my initial research. Convinced me to go with the 4600.

    I ran the 4600's on my 08 for 10 yrs just switched to 5100's in the rear and survey says ......there a upgrade. Of course that's just my opinion . Whatever works for you. :thumbsup:
