Tested under extreme conditions and fine-tuned to provide maximum damping capacity, Bilstein shocks sound like they can really take your suspension system's performance to the next level.

To help you answer these questions, check out the ratings below:


    Does it offer good performance? (5/5 stars)

    Bilstein's advanced, mono-tube gas-pressure technology makes its shocks a cut above the rest when it comes to delivering stellar suspension performance. This technology works to keep the oil in the absorber even under the strain of increased temperature, pressure, and load. The full power of this technology was tested and proven after driving a lowered BMW E36 on a rough, uneven terrain for about three hours. Even with all the potholes and bumps on the road, the E36 managed to maintain good stability and provide a comfortable ride. As the E36 eased through the road, strong impacts were hardly felt in the passenger cabin, thanks to the shocks' self-lowering pistons. The product swept all five stars for providing great ride quality.


    Can it be easily installed? (4/5 stars)

    The product can be fine-tuned upon installation to help you balance your vehicle according to your needs. Bilstein's threaded, adjustable kits allow you to modify the height of your ride even after the shocks have been installed. When installing the Bilstein HD shock, make sure you follow the instructions on the product carefully. Also, consult your vehicle manual for easier installation. Because the product can be easily installed and modified, four out of five rating was given.


    Will it fit your budget? (4/5 stars)

    Even with all the performance benefits the product offers, it doesn't come with a sky-high price tag. Well, it doesn't come cheap, but it won't empty your wallet either. For a high-performance shock, it is priced just right. The product garnered four out of five stars for its reasonable price.
