Shock valving ?? bilstien

I am wanting to get a set of bilstein shocks form my 76 bronco. I was wondering what would be the best valving and what do the number mean. Also a good place to by them or maybe a shock that is better then them.

Google Bilstein and find the pdf file that shows what they recommend, I found it, it shows you what they recommend as far as type of shock and valving settings.

what series of bilstein are you looking at? some series shocks don't have much for options, other's have tons of options, so to know what series your looking for is a huge help.

also i am a bilstein distributor.

the 5125's and 5150's have 2 choices, 170/60 and 255/70, unless your planning on doing dual shocks i'd nevr look twice at a 170/60, well unless it was a zuk, MAYBE!

the 7100 series shocks have 6 choices. but are over double the money per shock.

For an EB, the preferred Bilstein valving is I think 360/80 for the front and 255/70 for the rear. Do a search at classicbroncos.com to double check. Most like the 7100s especially since I think you have to get those or better for the right valving.
