Bilstein Shock Absorbers
Since Bilstein's inception over 40 years ago, Bilstein has been a unique and driving force in the automotive suspension industry with Bilstein shocks. 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. No other shock manufacturer has been able to equal the performance and enhanced ride characteristics of Bilstein. The Bilstein name graces not only monotube gas pressure shock absorbers, but also single and twin tube Macpherson strut style suspensions.
Ride, handling and control are what shock absorbers provide. Compromise in one area may create a problem in another. Bilstein's patented design reduces the need for compromise. The rising rate valving of the Bilstein shock absorbers provide the necessary damping to react quicker to road conditions without sacrificing ride comfort. This combination of valving and high pressure nitrogen gas keeps the tires in constant contact with the road helping to ensure safety through enhanced control.
Conventional shocks slowly lose efficiency and eventually fail over a period of time, causing excessive tire and suspension component wear. Bilstein shock absorbers continue to deliver optimum performance for life.
Of all a vehicle's suspension components, nothing works harder than the shock absorbers, making it critical to pick the correct ones. Bilstein's Gas Pressurized Shock Absorbers are the least expensive, and the easiest way to dramatically improve the ride, handling and control of any vehicle. Additionally, with Bilstein's aftermarket lifetime warranty, you can be assured they're built to last.
