    I'd like to put the Bilstein series 5100 shocks on my 1987 K5. It's got a 4" lift and I cant seem to find any for this application listed for Bilstein 5100s.

    If anyone has them please let me know the part #s.

    Thanks, Eric

    ORW has a nice site but does not list the 1987 4wd / 4" lift application ? The closest application is a 3" lift 1988-98 C1500 2wd PU ?

    BRBoudreaux, thanks - I'll call them !

    Beater74 - Good link ! I was thinkin about the 6100s but was concerned I'd have to make new shock mounts to accomodate the 1/2" heims. What was your solution ? Also, what valving are you going with ?

    I appreciate the help !
