Im starting this thread as i have the new struts installed and have about 400 miles on them. 75 of those miles are offroad the rest are a combination of highway and back roads. Dont let the title fool you. These struts are only adjustable before you puut them together. In order to adjust you have to take them apart move thr clip and reinstall. These struts have been good. The ride quality is much better and handlng has improved. I will keep updating as time goes.

I just found these today while searching around for replacements. I have been running the regular bilsteins for years up front and they are starting to get tired. I have been running 5100 rears for years also and the different front and rear valving is starting to wear on me. I’m definitely going to try a set of the 5100s for the front.
