AS the title states-I have no idea how many miles these shocks have. It has a Frankenlift, but other then that no other modifications. However, I just did have the front ball joints replaced with Moogs. Any suggestions on what shocks I should look at?
It is my daily driver, but do and plan to do more gentle off road and exploring (No rock climbing or going across Russia) Thanks for the words of wisdom

If it were me I'd contact All-J-Products and see what they charge for replacement shocks/struts. I don't know of anyone making a better bang-for-your-buck product right now. Others may have differing opinions, though.

I have had great experience with the Bilsteins as well. Picked them up on sale somewhere a couple of years ago.

I assumed like many other shocks there are higher grade (At least higher priced) models then others...I know nothing about shocks and struts other then some out there are extremely expensive, i.e remote reservoirs and such.....

Bilstein is considered one of the best brands for shocks.

Amazon shows 2 different shocks both Bilstein, Both sold by Bilstein through Amazon, same part numbers, way different prices.

What's the difference between B4 and B6 models? 4rwheelparts shows model B4, and Bilstein (Amazon) shows B6. B4 is described as twintube and B6 is described as monotube. Could someone please explain the difference?

WWDiesel part numbers are correct. 4Wheelparts only shows the B6 Bilstein shocks. The sales prices are correct and cheaper than the prices on Amazon. They are the ones to get.

Not sure, will have to research
According to Bilstein’s web site, the only one they list for a Jeep Liberty is the 24-139168 & the 24-139175 part numbers.
They are B6 4600 series.
They do not list a B4 series shock for the Jeep Liberty.
Matter of fact, they do not even list a B4 series shock for anything.

Sorry SirSam, your right, I didn't see the $54 price. They are temporarily out of stock though.

Regardless of the denials of others, I ask again:
One Seller - Bilstein
One Part # - 24-139175
All are B6 Monotube.
Why 3 different prices?


The 4wheelparts link doesn't fit KJ.

Nope, 3 sellers, look at the right, one was bicycle parts, one was 4 wheel online, one appears to be amazon(the cheapest and out of stock one).

So 3 sellers, 3 prices, same product.

Maybe use 4wheel parts price match to get amazon price?

I ordered the amazons ones since I am not in a hurry, got the fronts today, who knows when the rears come in.
