??? OEM Shocks for 1999 Tahoe 4x4
Posted 01 February 2007 - 12:56 AM
On Bilstein's wesite there are two options however: C and HD.
C: front F4-BE5-2412-HO rear F4-BE5-2413-HO
HD: front F4-B46-2040-HO rear F4-B46-2179-HO
I want to get the OEM shocks.
I called Bilstein they said to go with C. But to make a long story short, they did not sound too convincing.
The driverside front shockabsorber on my truck has the following numbers on it:
15 15 29 44

Thanks for the info. A stiff 3/4 ton like ride is exactly what I don't want. I just wanted to make sure C is not going to be too soft. But accordingly to what you say C is the OEM setting which is going to be just right. Thank you again.
I would say go with the C's. A friend of mine has a 99 Tahoe and put the HD's on. Thing rides stiff as hell, nothing like it used to. Rides more like a 3/4 ton now. Very sharp/quick jolts. If you want a stiffer ride, go witht he HD's, if you want a stock ride, go with the C's. Hope this helps.
