So are you able tell us what the Extended Length (MM) is? and the Collapsed Length (MM)? and are they good for up to 50mm lift in the rear

Also be interested in the above measurements for the front strut for lifted suspension

FYI only for comparison
With my rear setup I am using this shorter; Bilstein 24-002585.
I only have a 45mm rear lift above the "standard CWG 540" (my CWG is 585) and my spring/shock combo allows 80mm of droop (my CWG is 665 at full droop).
So this works for what I do with my Dmax and that is enough flex for me. Report did show these shocks are "open" at 565 cwg, not sure if they mean the shaft or protection boot-sleeve, so not sure if that is ideal.
(CWG = Centre of wheel to guard measure in mm)

Is this the code for the front strut to get 40mm lift

Bilstein 24-230780?

Hi
Front shocks Bilstein 24-233071 and 24-230780
Rear 24-233088 and 24-002585.

Your Toyota shock 24-002486 looks like a rear shock, from memory they had leaf springs up front.
front Dmax shock should look like these go down 6 post viewtopic.php?f=16&t=965&start=20 ( Thanks Jim )


Hi,
Regarding the front shocks, what is the difference between the part numbers? Valving?
Do both front shocks have the cir-clip style height adjustment?

Both will have the adjustable height, most sites including Bilstiens itself recommends 071 front and 088 rear so it would probably be just valving but it could be standard height and 40mm lift too, best to ring someone direct on that mate.

So getting close to pulling the trigger on a bilstein setup but have a couple of questions.
Spoke to quadrant which is also bilstein australia and was told you can adjust the height on the front assembly via the circlip. Has anyone done this and is it possible to adjust whilst installed?

Im thinking about doing front & rear shocks and just front "comfort" springs for now but my concern is that the back may sit lower then the front unladen. Mostly my tub is empty (dual cab lsm) however every couple of weeks ill do a load of mulch or dirt for my property currently it drops about 30 mm at the back would this change at all with just a shock upgrade?

Finally i havent done an install before and i would like to reuse my factory strut tops to save some dollars how time consuming is this as opposed to just buying a pre assembled unit? Spring compressors will be required and ill be doing the install at a mates place who has the tools etc plus experience but i dont want to turn a few hours into a day if possible.

Cheers for the help much appreciated Reece.

Yes, there are circlips on the front shockies which can be used to adjust the amount of pre-load compression on the coils. This will alter ride height. Can't remember what the range of adjustment was. You would need to remove the strut and use your spring compressors to alter the circlips.

Remember, shock absorbers manage ride and handling only. Shockies do not carry load nor alter ride height. Both load and ride height are a function of the springs/coils.

To replace front and rear springs/coils and 4 x shockies should be achievable in a morning's work for a first timer.
