    I just installed a set of Bilstein Series 5100 BE5-6249 "longer" travel shocks on my 1987 K-5. They seem to work quite well. Now I want to do the front - anybody out there with 5100s on the front of a full size chevy ? Wondering if one is enough or should I go with duals.

    Thanks, Eric

    Where did you get them? How much did you pay?

    I got mine from Kartek Off-road (Chino, CA - they sell buggy and racing stuff as well, Ask for Mike A.). I also saw them on http://www.aor4x4.com/longtravelshocks.htm I paid $70/ea.

    I removed 10-year old (+60k hard miles) Rancho RS7000s. Nice improvement.
