Why we choose Bilstein Shocks

In 1954 Bilstein revolutionized the car industry when it invented and patented the first monotube gas pressure shock absorber. Today, Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers provide precise handling, stability, control and comfort. The rising rate design reacts more quickly to road conditions, while high-pressure nitrogen gas helps keep the tires glued to the rocks.

Bilstein Gas Pressure Struts use a twin tube design, with the rod pointing down for greater strength and resistance to twisting and side loads. Bilstein shocks typically last four times longer than original equipment shocks. Read more
