Bilstein 5160 Remote Reservoir Shocks

The Bilstein 5160 shocks feature the 5100's monotube, pressurized gas design, but adds much more finely tuned valving and increased shaft travel.

Digressive valving provides full damping capability instantly and works with the reservoir's greater oil capacity and large gas chamber, allowing it to respond immediately to terrain changes.

Another benefit of the reservoir is improved high-speed control, and because the floating dividing piston has been moved to the reservoir and the bodies have been shortened, the shaft has a longer range of travel. The swivel hose line that connects the reservoir to the body makes for a cleaner, more compact installation.

Features:

- Bilstein Industry Leading Monotube Design.

- Unique Digressive Valving System, full Damping Capability.

- Remote Reservoir Dramatically Increases Shock Oil Capacity.  

- Configuration Designed Specifically for each Vehicle Application.

- Bilstein exclusive Triple-C Technology  finish Provides Easy Care.

- Shown with optional billet aluminum reservoir mounting clamp (part #11-176015).

Unlike many aftermarket shocks, which require you to figure out the best way to mount the reservoir, Bilstein has done the guesswork for you.

Each 5160 comes complete with a kit and instructions on how to mount the reservoirs for each application. This aspect of the 5160 makes it a direct replacement part that requires no cutting, welding, or fabrication to make it fit.

Other important features of the 5160 are the 46mm piston and a super-strong, case-hardened, hard chromed and polished 14mm shaft. All bushings and hardware are OEM-quality for long life. Bilstein's Triple-C Technology is used in the finish for long-lasting good looks and extreme weather durability.

Great ride quality and awesome looks!

I got a set of the new 5160's for my JK from OK. I drove an hour to their store...so I was really stoked that they had these in-stock!!! However, I wasn't really suprised because when I pulled up there was probably 5 other JK's in the parking lot and there showroom is huge. I love the ride quality of these shocks and they look sick under my JK (4" lift). These shocks aren't cheap...but they are definitely killer shocks!
