Need Shocks!!!

Hey guys, so when i got my superlift kit from 4wp over a year ago, the sent it with the wrong shocks.. front and rear.. dad got the correct front ones, but now i need the rear ones.. i tried doing the whole 4wp's thing again, and well got burned AGAIN.. so NEVER going through them again..

So, where can i get the 4" shocks for the rear?

Are you wanting Superlift shocks only? You can get all new Bilstein shocks on ebay for $286

Bilstein Shocks 98+ 3-6" $286

Or Summit
Superlift Shocks Ranger

Autoanything has a large variety including superlift. I bought my leaf springs from them. Got free shipping.
Auto Anything

yeah, all i need is the rear shocks.. dont know if i want to put bilsteins in the rear with the superlifts in the front? shocks are kinda on the lower end of the priority list right now to be honest, i have so much stuff i gotta/want to get for the ranger, so dont know if i want to spend a bunch of money on shocks

im strongly considering a set of 5100's just for the cool factor of having Bilstien shocks... my superlift shocks work just great

yeah, cant complain with the superlift "super rides" lol

I am sure someone is going to come in here and tell you why the Bilstiens are sooo much better, but I bet you wouldnt ev en be able to tell the difference in the ride.

I read on the description for the lift kit that Bilstein made the Superride SS Shocks. Interesting. But they are only made for f150, 250 and 350.
