GETTING THE RIDE THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU
Bilstein mono-tube gas pressure shock absorbers are available in a wide variety of sizes and stiffness settings, depending upon the
vehicle type and use. All Bilstein shocks absorbers instantaneously self-adjust to changing road surfaces; in addition, their performance
does not gradually decline from age, use or heat, requiring no compensating manual adjustments as with conventional multi-tube
shocks. Shock stiffness settings are divided into five usage categories shown below.
SPORT (S) – B8
For the performance-minded driver, Bilstein “Sport” shocks deliver absolute mastery of the road surface.
Designed to push a car’s suspension to its performance peak, these shocks are well suited for use with special springs, anti-sway
bars or other suspension upgrades.
HEAVY DUTY (HD) – B6
For most vehicles including full-size sedans, SUVs and trucks. These shocks provide improved handling and stability without
sacrifi cing ride comfort. They offer super damping ability that makes them ideal for heavy hauling for occasional off-road use, while
maintaining and exceptional “street” ride.
COMFORT (C) – B4
For the driver who wants maximum ride comfort, with the virtual elimination of “bottoming out” and vehicle sway.
These shocks generally maintain and, in many cases, enhance a vehicle’s original ride qualities while increasing
road-handling and overall stability.
For specifi c manufactured lift kits utilizing the stock OEM mounting confi guration.
Self-adjusting defl ective disc valving, independent rebound and compression with superior control for larger diameter tires.
For rigorous demands of driving competition. Their success should be measured by the unprecedented levels of acceptance
and use by professional drivers in virtually all major Motorsports.
Include such features as spherical bearings, adjustable spring seats longer or shorter than standard dimensions. *Not suited
for street use.
