Question: Hellow I’m very interested in several shocks offerd by Bilstein & have visited their sight as well & am unable to findout what the #s mean @ the end of products #s listed below & the shocks valving.also the type of mounting ends as well as the EXT/Col Lengths.
BE-6457-H5 or T5
BE-6458-H5 or T5
Answer: Both the H5 and T5 versions of those shocks are designed only to be installed on the OEM mounting points if you’ve done any customization to the shock mounts they won’t work. The H5 pair is designed to work with 3″ to 5″ of suspension lift, while the T5 versions are only for spring over lifts. The shocks are the same lengths, but they are valved differently so that they perform correctly for the type of lift that was done.
