Improves Handling Performance while Greatly Reducing Heat Soak and Fade
2015-2020 F150s destined for aggressive off-roading are going to need a shock that doesn't only handle violent articulation, but one that also provides fade-free performance no matter how hard you're pushing your aggressive F150 build. The Bilstein 5160 Remote Reservoir Rear Shock features everything you know and love about the Bilstein 5100s, but also adds in a complete remotely-mounted reservoir that provides more oil, vastly improved heat dissipation, and slightly more travel than the standard 5100 rear shock. The 5160 features a high-strength construction and finely-tuned valving that gives your F150 excellent reliability and a great ride on both the street and off of it. The shock can handle 0-2" of rear lift, allowing you to use larger blocks or add-a-leaf kits for additional tire clearance.
Gas-Charged Monotube Design with Remotely-Mounted Reservoir
Each shock was designed from the ground up to provide both a huge increase in performance and fade-resistance over the factory rear shock. The 5160 rear shock utilizes a gas-charged, monotube internal design with a 46mm internal diameter that provides improved rebound and response over stock. Bilstein designs each of the 5160 rear shocks with velocity-sensitive digressive valving that helps provide a smooth and clean ride on the street, while still easily handling off-road abuse. The remotely-mounted reservoir can be mounted to the shock piggy-back style with the shock's included hardware, or away from the main shock body thanks to its unique swivel banjo-fitting and malleable hose. Both the shock and the reservoir feature a clear zinc-plated finish for protection against corrosion. Fitment:
