Driving a vehicle equipped with Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers is an exhilarating experience. There is, quite literally, nothing like it. Unbelievable control and stability. Precise handling. Ultimate performance. And incredible comfort.
Since our inception over 40 years ago, Bilstein has been a unique and driving force in the automotive suspension industry. Bilstein was 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. 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 Macpherson strut style suspensions.
From racing and testing in Formula 1, NASCAR, SCCA, Rally, and Off Road to original equipment on BMW, Ferrari, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota and GM trucks, Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers have proven to be the best. Be it the high banks of NASCAR racing or the harsh terrain of the Baja 1000, Bilstein‘s worldwide racing dominance is legendary. Racing is the ultimate proving ground, making success in motorsports imperative.
As racing suspension technology pushes the limits, it takes a superior shock absorber to provide the higher degree of control necessary for the vehicle to remain predictable and stable at ever increasing G-forces. Bilstein has met this challenge.
Bilstein Gas Pressure Shocks And Struts
If you’ve never experienced the exhilaration you feel when driving a vehicle equipped with Bilstein Shocks, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. You’ll soon discover there is, quite literally, nothing like it. Unbelievable control. Precise handling. Ultimate performance. And incredible comfort.
Most conventional shocks are made with shock bodies cut from a piece of steel tubing, stamped internal parts and compromised tolerances.
In contrast, Bilstein‘s shock bodies are precision formed through a unique seamless extrusion process. This provides superior strength along with high finish tolerances that are usually associated with surgical instruments. The finished body is then mated with a solid, induction hardened steel chrome plated and polished shaft, machined valving components and highest quality seals. Combined with extreme attention to detail, Bilstein provides you with the closest thing to a hand built shock available today.
Conventional shocks slowly lose efficiency and eventually fail over a period of time causing excessive tire and suspension wear. Bilstein Shocks continue to deliver optimum performance for life.
Of all your suspension components, nothing works harder than your shock absorbers, making it critical you pick the right ones for your vehicle. Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers are the least expensive, fastest way to dramatically improve the ride, handling and control of your vehicle. Plus, with Bilstein‘s lifetime warranty, you may never have to purchase shock absorbers again.
