Just be careful and call and verify stock before ordering. I just remembered I ordered from there but ended up only getting the front from them as the rears were back-ordered at the time. Luckily someone else was selling an almost brand new set at the time which helped me out.

Just installed the front and rear Bilstiens about a week ago. Ordered them from shock warehouse, same deal, same model and number as above, only for 06 KC SE 4x4(024 rears instead of 025). Got them less than a week later. No problems or issues.

BTW, there have been some past posts about the rears mounting boot down. The ones that are shipping now mount with the boots up. So spread the word......

What a difference from stock. Still smooth but better control and dampening without getting too nutty. Good, cheap mod w/o changing anything.

Hey DMI do you have any pictures? Boot side up is great news! The boot facing down is the only reason I didn't upgrade to these earlier.

Thanks DMI. I emailed shock warehouse inquiring about the shocks mounting up or down and they had no idea. I'll have to call Bilstein directly to get the 411.

Those are the ones I got and where I got them from.[/QUOTE]

I ordered the 2-3 drop from McGau... It makes sense to replace the shocks at the same time (wallet's growing thin). Any reason I should not go with the Bilstein beast for front and rear?

Definitely do them for at least the fronts since you would have to dis-assemble the factory strut if to put the springs on anyways. The rears are easy to put on by yourself later if you need to for money reasons. That said I did all of mine at the same time and it was a noticeable improvement.

Is an alignment necessary after installing new shocks/struts? I have the B's coming and will have them installed in a week or so.

Thanks.

I was told by an independent shop as well as the Nissan dealer that they require checking the alignment after doing the fronts. I had it done when I did my fronts. They alignment did in fact change from the OEM shocks and they adjusted it.

The ones I got won't mount upside down.
