Hey guys,
So many topics on this and read different views. I have the 2.5 lift leveling kit from MarkMc and upgrading my shocks. I currently got Monroe's which were running fine but need something bit more HD. I contacted a vendor online and seeing I'm an international customer can't really afford any mistakes or I'm killed on shipping charges. This is what I'm ordering which I believe should be ok

The salesman however doesn't guarantee will fit since I'm lifted. I do remember reading an article on offroadtb if not mistaken that I should be fine.

Thanks guys!

Ok so after some more and more reading I know a big chunk of the guys are running BDS 55619 in the back but before that a little more background on my lift:

1- Front: MarkMc 2.5 spacer lift but without the upper spacer putting me at about 2 Inches
2- Back: 1.5 spacer lift + Stock springs

I know the BDS was made for applications running 2 inches at a minimum so still not sure they'll work. Seeing i'm running Monroes with my lift now i'm pretty sure they'll fit but the ride isn't pleasent lol

Will the BDS 55619 fit or should I stick to the originial Bilstein HD for the rear. :undecided:

Bds will be fine

Thanks bud! Bilsteins front and BDS in the rear! I hope I can get them all from the same vendor lol! At worst if I would need to get the bilsteins in the back would I be ok with that too?
