    I'm considering those for my pickup. Hopefully someone on this site has 'em and can give their .02!

    One of the main differences is they arent adjustable IIRC. Other than that I havent heard anything negative.

    They do have adjustable spring seats just like the 5100s for 4 different height settings. I am pretty sure they are set up more for off-road application. Would like to know myself so I don't steer anyone the wrong way.

    A number of orders for these went out so far this week. Not sure if any of them are forum members on here, but hopefully they will chime in with their results.

    Have had them on for about 6 months. Top setting, lifted front about 2.75"s. Great shocks, definitely better than the Bilstein 4600's that came on truck.
    Very happy with them.

    Looks good. Did you notice a difference on Speed Bumps and such?

    They should work great. The lowest setting is about .75" of lift though. But that can be good if you are trying to make up for additional weight like a bumper and winch.

    Current pricing on the Current Stock is $659.00 for the set. We can pre-assemble them with all new components so they are ready to bolt on when you get them for $142.00

    I run these and I am on desert roads/trails almost every day. They work amazing. They're digressive so they are super smooth once I hit about 35+ mph.
