Bilstein shocks and struts are produced to tolerances befitting the aerospace industry
Shock and strut damping is essential to controlling your car, so ensure your safety by installing Bilstein shocks
Most Bilstein shocks and struts have a lifetime warranty, proving their reliability and engineering
If you wonder why most high-performance cars feature Bilstein shocks, add a set to your ride and find out
Before we discuss what makes Bilstein shock absorbers unique in a crowded market, we should touch briefly on what your shocks do. Your car, truck, van, or SUV is supported primarily by two pieces of equipment: springs and shocks. Yeah, there are bushings and control arms and such involved, but a spring and a shock at each corner do the heavy lifting. Springs suspend the car, and shocks, like Bilstein shock absorbers, control the motion of the springs. Without Bilstein shock absorbers, your car would continue to bounce after it hit a bump, or it would begin to rebound while you were still traveling through a turnneither situation is pleasant. Bilstein shock absorbers do what all shocks docontrol spring motion. But comparing Bilstein shock absorbers to other brands is like saying that a Hyundai and a Ferrari will both get you to work. It's true, but the statement doesn't give the whole picture. Bilstein shock absorbers are constructed from solid pieces of steel where others use rolled sheet steel. Bilstein shock absorbers use extrusions where other shocks have stampings. The construction quality of Bilstein shock absorbers are far beyond those of any other shocks in the business. So, if you want shocks that will give you uncompromised ride control for the life of your car, make sure you ask for Bilstein shock absorbers.Bilstein's line of premium ride control products extends beyond shocks and into their Bilstein strut lineup. Just like their shocks, a Bilstein strut is made unlike any other strut in the business. First, instead of a rolled steel tube to house the strut, a Bilstein strut utilizes a monoformed extrusion for exceptional strength. Next, to control friction forces inside the Bilstein strut, the company polishes its precision-ground internal components to a finish that the company claims is more commonly associated with surgical gear. With this kind of attention to detail, it's no wonder that every Bilstein strut is warranted for lifethey've made it that good. Your struts carry a heavier burden than shocks. That's because struts, like a Bilstein strut, have to manage several different forces in the suspension system due to their compact nature. The spring ordinarily acts directly on the Bilstein strut, and turning forces have to be managed in a front-mounted Bilstein strut. This is not an area you want compromises, particularly if you use your car in any kind of competitive formsanctioned or unsanctioned. You will stay safer and you'll win more races if you have the best equipment possible on your vehicle. When it comes to ride control, the best equipment consists of a Bilstein strut at each corner of your car.
