This shock has an RCD part number but is built by Bilstein. This is a Bilstein 5100 Series shock that was specifically designed for use on the rear of a suspension lifted 2004+ Ford F150 2wd or 4x4 truck. If you haven't been able to find a Bilstein shock for your Ford it's because RCD has a lock on the production of these shocks... this length shock with F150 specific mounts can ONLY be purchased as an RCD part number. Fortunately PerformanceLifts.com is an authorized dealer for Race Car Dynamics products and we have access to this shock. It can be installed as a rear shock on most 2004+ Ford F150 trucks equipped with a 3" to 4" over stock height rear suspension lift.
For over 40 years Bilstein has been a unique and driving force in the automotive suspension industry. During that time Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers haven proven to be the best. Yes, the best. If youve never experienced the exhilaration you feel when driving a vehicle equipped with Bilstein Shocks, youre in for a pleasant surprise. Youll soon discover there is, quite literally, nothing like it. Unbelievable control. Precise handling. Ultimate performance. And incredible comfort. Bilstein performance shocks put most stock shocks to shame.
Most conventional shocks are made with shock bodies cut from a piece of steel tubing, stamped internal parts and compromised tolerances. In contrast, Bilsteins shock bodies are precision formed through a unique seamless extrusion process. This provides superior strength along with high finish tolerances that are usually associated with surgical instruments. The finished body is then mated with a solid, induction hardened steel chrome plated and polished shaft, machined valving components and the highest quality seals available. Combine these features with extreme attention to detail and Bilstein provides you with the closest thing to a hand built shock available today. Conventional shocks can lose efficiency and eventually fail over a period of time causing excessive tire and suspension wear. Bilstein Shocks continue to deliver optimum performance for the life of the vehicle.
Of all your suspension components, nothing works harder than your shock absorbers, making it critical you pick the right ones for your vehicle. Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers are the least expensive, fastest way to dramatically improve the ride, handling and control of your new vehicle. Knowing what goes into each Bilstein shock is one thing... winning races is proof that Bilstein technology really works.
