    Default gotta get new shocks for the rear

    Hey guys,
    can anyone shoot me a part number for a bilstein 5100 shock that would work for my rear shocks?
    i have a 3 inch block back there, so anytime i search on website there never really an option for that, and autoanything.com actually does not have bilstein 5100's for my 1500 silverado which i think is weird...
    any help is appreciated, ive been due for a while to upgrade them, already did the fronts...

    god bless you! lol
    the only potential problem i see is that these are for a 4WD truck. i have 2WD...
    does that matter with a rear shock application?

    rear shock position etc. should be the same as I dont believe the rear suspension is different from 2wd to 4wd
