i am looking at the bilstein coilover i called bilstein and was informed that the only difference between the two are that i can adjust the ride height without having to remove the shock with the coilover. so my ? is should i just save the money and get just the shocks or spend a little more and get the coils thanks.

I'd save the money and just get the 5100 shocks.

Ive been deciding between the two. Coilovers will be a lot easier to install versus having to use a spring compressor.

Believe me, I know all about the difficulties of needing a spring compressor, and I have to use one on a set of high-dollar coilovers, too.

It will cost between nothing and 40$ to have someone else use a spring compressor on the less expensive shocks.
