    the 6100 run somthing like $118 each i got all four for under $500 with shipping and man are they nice. give the fellas at eshock a call cause Bilstein is in the middle of retooling the 6100 series and they can be hard to get. they are changing the tubes of the 6100's from yellow to chrome, so untill they build up their inventory again some distributors are have probs getting them. The folks over at allprooffroad.com said they couldn't get'm but eshocks made one call and had them to me in a week direct from bilstein with the prudy yellow tubes. be aware the the 6100's use a 1/2" spherical eyelet (witch is great) but it can require some mods to yer shock mounts. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    A cheaper alternative could be the 5100 series. I just put them on and really like them. Paid $70 ea and they are factory rebuilable. They have a "brushed chrome" look instead of the traditional yellow - much nicer. I got mine through Kartek (www.kartek.com). They have the traditional rubber bushing/sleeve mounts using 1/2" bolts.
