Bilsteins are the best, way better than anything else.

I wanted Bilsteins but there was a factory shortage so I went with KYB gas shocks. Hope they are almost as good.

I was in contact with Biltein and they can revalve them for a softer ride. I'm not completely sure how much a revalve will help though because the springs effect the ride too. Haven't found out the exact cost yet. They are in Poway, California. 858-386-5900 tech dept.

I too think the Bilstiens are fantastic!

So was your ride better than it had been? What kind of shock did the car have on it before?

I love my Bilsteins. Replaced the Original Bilsteins that were 18 years old, and getting worn, but still held pressure after all those years.

Unless I switch to coil-overs, and possibly if I do, my next shocks will be Bilsteins as well; likely put them on my Jeep too.
