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....
