I bought the parts from wheelersoffroad.com - they have very good service.

It's dark out, so I can't get a pic.
Please tell me about these 5100s. I am about to pull the trigger on a Rough Country spring/strut/rear shock kit that is for sale locally for the same price as your Bilstiens. It has 300 miles on it.
I'd love to see a pic tomorrow if you get a chance.
