Bilstein and Rubicon Express ensure every mono-tube shock absorber lives up to the tougher demands of street driving and trail use that lifted Jeeps face. Each one is relentlessly tested and fine-tuned during off-road races, safari challenges, and rock crawling to deliver the instantaneous level of control you need to do the things you really want. Like most mono-tube shock absorbers, these Bilstein 5100s feature hydraulic oil and nitrogen in separate chambers separated by a floating piston. However, the larger diameter of the 5100 shock body provides greater heat dissipation for performance that doesn't fade after a hot day pounding over the trails. Self-adjusting deflective disc valving consistently provides superior damping as conditions change and outside temperatures fluctuate. Because there's no aerating of fluid within the shock body, there is no wasted time adapting to irregular surfaces – a factor that creates optimum performance at all times. Reduced operating temperatures within the shocks combined with reinforced steel construction will extend the functional life of these shock absorbers significantly. These are not throw-away shocks by any stretch of the imagination.
The design of the monotube shock absorbers makes them ideal for hauling heavy loads as well. Plus, a higher level of damping ability the Bilsteins offer reduces unwanted bounce and sway to provide more control when you need it at slow speeds or fast. Not only is Rubicon Express dedicated to offering products that perform, they go by the staunch belief that a product that doesn't last is not worth putting on your vehicle at all. Unlike most other brands, Bilstein and Rubicon Express stand behind their mono-tube shock absorbers with a limited lifetime warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.
