Bilstein Shocks

Bilstein Shocks

Since our inception over 40 years ago Bilstein has been a unique and driving force in the automotive suspension industry. From racing and testing in Formula 1, NASCAR, SCCA, Rally, and Off Road to original equipment on BMW, Ferrari, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota and GM trucks, Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers have proven to be the best.

If you've never experienced the exhilaration you feel when you driving a vehicle equipped with Bilstein Shocks, you're in for a pleasant surprise. You'll soon discover there is, quite literally, nothing like it. Unbelievable control, Precise handling. Ultimate performance. And incredible comfort.

Better Built

Most conventional shocks are made with shock bodies cut from a piece of steel tubing, stampedinternal parts and compromised tolerances.

In contrast, Bilstein's shock bodies are precision formed through a unique seamless extrusion process. This provides superior strength along with high finish tolerances that are usually associated with surgical instruments. The finished body is then mated with a solid, induction hardened steel chrome plated and polished shaft, machined valving components and highest quality seals. Combined with extreme attention to detail, Bilstein provides you with the closest thing to a hand built shock available today.

Better by Design

Heat is one of the major detriments to the performance and longevity of any shock absorber. Conventional designed shocks trap the heat within the shock body and do not let it adequately dissipate, making them prone to heat build up, fade and eventual failure.

Bilstein's technically superior, patented monotube gas charged design allows the excessive heat from the oil to transfer to the outer surface of the shock body and dissipate more efficiently. The dividing piston also permits the oil to expand as heat builds, preventing aeration (foaming) and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain full damping characteristics as temperature rise.

The Right Shock for Your Specific Application

Unlike other manufactures who provide a minimum selection of shocks to cover a broad range of applications, Bilstein Shocks are built for each specific application. Luxury car, Sports car, Sport Utility, Pickup or Motorhomes, Bilstein engineers take into account everything from external dimensions, internal valving, mounting hardware to the weight and type of vehicle. In fact, depending on your driving style, in some cases Bilstein offers a choice of shocks to satisfy your individual performance preferences.

Safer Driving Through Superior Control

Ride, handling and control are what a shock absorber provides. Compromise in one area may create a problem in another. Bilstein's patented design eliminates any compromise. The rising rate valving of the Bilstein Shock provides the necessary damping to react quicker to road conditions without sacrificing ride control. This combination of valving and high pressure nitrogen gas keeps your tires in constant contact with the road helping to ensure safety through enhanced control.

Your Best Value...for a Lifetime

Of all your suspension components, nothing works harder than your shock absorbers, making it critical you pick the right ones for your vehicle. Bilstein Gas Pressurized Shock Absorbers are the least expensive, fastest way, to dramatically improve the ride, handling and control of your vehicle. Plus, with Bilstein's lifetime warranty, you may never have to purchase shock absorbers again.
