Bilsteins... what ones

by Calibra_Mike » Tue May 18, 2010 6:48 pm

Im looking at getting a full set of shocks at the end of the month, but ive noticed Bilstein have changed there stock... Ive got lowering springs on at the moment so what would the best shocks be to go for?

I see they do a B4 B6 or B8... I was wondering if the B4 and B6 shocks still work well with lowering springs?

About a month ago I fitted a complete Spax spring and damper kit that lowered mine 35mm. Designed for comfort at lower speeds but comes into it's own at speed and through the bends. Absolutely no complaints - does what it says on the tin.

For fronts, Bilstein B8 & Eibach springs is the best combo I've tried.
Combine with Koni Sport rears on 5mm raising platforms & whiteline rear arb for best non-coilover setup. IMHO :)
