Rear Bilstein Part #'s

Anyone have the Bilstein part #'s for the rear shocks on the SMB's with the rear Deaver setup?

Thanks,
Josh

Hey Josh,

If I can remember to crawl under in the daylight tomorrow I'll get the part number off of mine that Deaver installed.

Re: Rear Bilstein Part #'s

Deaver put Bilstein # AK7108S99 on the rear of my rig. The 71 is the series, the 08 means 8" of travel and the 99 means special valving. In my case it's 440/85.

If I was to do it over (I'm thinking of doing that) I'd put on AK7110SB99 (10" of travel) and ask for the 440/85 valving. That's the same shock Deaver put on the front, but they went with 360/80 valving. The 8" shock on the rear is just too short. Hassle with going with the 10"er is having to change out the top and bottom mounts. Not that much of a biggie if you have a welder or a shop that can do it. Better then having to extend the bump stops and bottoming out. That's what I'm doing now....

Re: Rear Bilstein Part #'s

Thanks Scatter. You saved me from crawling around on the street under my van later tonight.

I haven't noticed the rear shocks topping out (over extending). Not to say it isn't happening, just haven't noticed it. Deaver made new bump stops for me that mount to the top of the spring pack. I don't ever notice that I hit them, but again I may be at slow speed 4wheeling and just not notice (I try not to jump my van). With the additional leaf I had Deaver add to their spring pack after the fact, my van sits level when fully loaded. Before the additional leaf, I had sag butt when loaded.

Thanks fellas, I appreciate it. My Ranchos are shot, and probably weren't even rated for this weight to begin with.
