Shocks!!!!

I called 4 wheel Parts for a price on Bilstein 5100 shocks for my 2014 2500 4x4 diesel. Salesman says Bilstein DOES NOT MAKE a 5100 series shock for a NON-LIFTED RAM 2500 4x4. My question is what are you Bilstein shock running guys using?
Part number?

Is there an equivalent shock, something better? KYB`s? Please help.

Great !!!

The 5100's are for lifted / leveled trucks.

Using 5100's on stock suspended trucks has made the front coil springs shift (in some instances) when situations allow the suspension to extend far enough.

The 4600's have the same valving as the 5100's anyway.

I have 5100s on my nonlifted truck. I put those shocks on at 33,520 miles. I now have 132,434 miles and haven't experienced a single issue with them.
