Bilstein 5100 shocks
I posted the following in the 4th gen suspension forums a week ago. Needless to say it's kind of dead down there, so I'm going to repost up here:
Hey guys, got my Bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks for the '11 Big Horn. I wont be installing them for a couple weeks unfortunately (no time).

Anyways, I noticed there's no boot included with these shocks, and when I visit the Bilstein website and look at the shocks product info, it says boot not included. Are these ok to install without the boots, or am I supposed to purchase them from somewhere else?

Thanks for the help.

thanks for the reply candy! I'll be posting pics sometime in the few weeks, I might pay someone to do the install though.

I would strongly urge you not to run the boots. Water and dirt make their way in and then they are retained as you can't wash the shaft. This causes pitting, rust, and premature wear of the shock.
