Maybe the shocks I received are not correct. I will check tomorrow and reply back..Below are what I think are the stock part #'s.
5175 959AC Shock Front

^^^ Those are correct. The stock shocks are only available through the dealer. Bilstein does not even list a replacement shock for us on their website. They do offer shocks for the standard WK1, which may explain the negative performance you guys are seeing with these shocks.
There is a dealer here in MA that has the OEM front shocks on sale for $400 a pair. This forum blocks out the website though, so I cant post a link. Quirk Jeep is the dealer, and their website sounds like Yust for Yeeps.
