Re: Bilstein shocks 5125
I'd recommend getting the van weighed (full fuel tank) with a split weight between front and rear. Then call up a suspension specialty company, or a spring specialty company (e.g. Deaver), tell them what you have, what you're looking for. what kind of driving you will be doing, and ask them what they'd recommend. Personally, I would then buy from whomever you call if they provide good advice. You will probably be able to find the shocks somewhat cheaper from internet sources, but about the only support you can expect from most internet-houses is a package tracking number.
Just because a particular shock/valving combination worked for somebody else, isn't much of an indicator if it will work for your van and driving expectations.
