DescriptionEngineered specifically for use with lowering (sport) springs. Years ago, sport shocks had a reputation for providing a harsh ride. That's not the case with the new generation of Bilstein sport shocks. Patented digressive valving delivers exceptional road handling and cornering stability with sport springs without the harsh ride. They also reduce wear and tear on steering and suspension components and increase tire life by matching their dampening rates to the increased firmness of sport springs. Add superior design, precision manufacturing and attention to quality and it is easy to see why Bilstein's high-pressure gas sport shocks are known as the world top-performing sport shocks. Lifetime warranty. NOTE: Shocks should be replaced in pairs. Hydraulic and gas shocks should not be combined on the same vehicle.

Brand DescriptionFor over 50 years, Bilstein has been a world leader in gas pressure shock absorber development and manufacturing. They were the first to apply the patented gas pressure principle to controlling ride characteristics on automobiles and introduced the world's first monotube gas pressure shock absorber to provide stability through resistance to lateral forces. Today, Bilstein continues to be the leader in monotube gas pressure shock absorber technology. The Bilstein name graces not only monotube gas pressure shock absorbers, but also single and twin tube McPherson strut style suspensions. Utilizing the same technological design advantages as their monotube gas pressure shock absorbers, Bilstein's twin tube strut assemblies are designed to withstand maximum loads while providing high durability. Both Bilstein shocks and struts are built to meet the fitment and performance needs of specific vehicles. And their patented design reduces the need for a compromise between ride, handling and control. The rising rate valving of the Bilstein shock absorber provides the necessary damping to react quicker to road conditions without sacrificing ride comfort. This combination of valving and high-pressure nitrogen gas keeps the tires in constant contact with the road helping to enhance safety through improved control. Rigorous development, testing and attention to detail combine to provide exceptional handling and ride comfort for your vehicle and a product that will outlast and outperform Original Equipment shock absorbers. Additionally, with Bilstein's aftermarket lifetime warranty, you can be assured they're built to last.
