Product Description


The choice for the truly discriminating driver, Bilstein HDs offer handling so superior, they're capable of damping wheel movement as small as 2mm. And that's smooth!

Most stock shocks just don't have enough damping on compression and rebound. The result is mushy transitional performance, brake dive, choppy feel on expansion joint and in some cases, suspension crash through.

Explaining how Bilstein HDs improve ride with increased damping is difficult. How can the ride be smoother and feel plusher if the shock is stiffer? A big part of improvement comes from Bilstein's patented digressive valving system that helps soak up initial shock loads before full damping is achieved. This takes off the edge of most impacts and completely changes the feel of the car. An unusually high number of customers have called back with praise of Bilsteins. One customer went so far as to say, "You guys are too subtle in your ads for these things, you've got to let people know that this is the fix!"

Potential Product Fitment Issues

These Bilsteins are designed for LOWERED height cars. The valving is the same as the stock height models -- the difference is only the height of the strut.

Does NOT fit cars with FOUR-C Active suspension or XC models.

Please note: Although Bilstein HD struts feature internal bump stops and already have a dust boot installed you still need to use the top "stop" washer between the top of the strut and the bottom of the upper spring seat.
