I ended up with the Tough Dogs after getting tired of waiting on a Bilstein backlog. Very happy with them and Jason from Trail Tailor was excellent. Nothing like personal service from someone that knows the vehicles and the products. I don't really "wheel", just lots of bouncy beach miles and double track. Love the shocks. See above posts. Or here Trail TailorHey there, I've had a tough time finding Bilsteins 5100 for my 91. Most places that I went to were back-ordered. I don't really wheel much anymore, so don't want to throw a ton of money into a solution that would not get much use. I know some folks were big on Billies. Any other thoughts? I thought that Fox was overkill for what i'm doing with these.
Been driving it for about a week now. I'm slightly concerned about the long term reliability but we'll see what happens. Still needs a bunch of work..
What are these 95-97 Flanges you speak of?!?!?!?Nope....just source some larger 95-97 flanges and swap them out. Yours are worn down, hence the back and forth slop when you're on and off the gas. It's a very misleading noise. I had ACC in Atl diagnose and fix mine years ago.
I bought and returned 95-97 flanges b/c they are too wide to fit on my 91' spindles. Got the right ones for my year and have 50% less clunk. to go with newer drive flanges you need to do the longer birfs in later models. I just redid my 91's so no point. my 2 centsWhat are these 95-97 Flanges you speak of?!?!?!?
Pretty cool. Learn something every day. If I ever need to replace them again it opens up options significantly.You can use the new style thicker flanges with the shorter birfields, you just can’t use the original clip; you have to use a fender washer with a bolt into the birfield end instead. I have posted about this somewhere before... I have the thicker flanges on my truck with the short birfields.
