Monotube Technology - the Number-One Choice in Motorsports

This photo dramatically illustrates the size difference between the larger working piston inside a Bilstein monotube shock and smaller one found in a typical twin tube shock.The original and best mono-tube gas pressure shock absorbers all wear the Bilstein name, because Bilstein shock absorbers are the best there is. The number-one choice in motor-sports and for series-production sports cars, the monotube shock absorber has a unique design that affords the freedom to choose the ideal installation position or location.

  • Monotube shocks feature a large surface on the working piston which increases the damping power and provides better handling.
  • The design of the monotube shock improves the dissipation of heat which improves the life of the shock and enables a consistent and dependable level of absorber performance.
  • Bilstein's Upside-Down Technology creates a safer functioning shock absorber.

Gas Pressure Technology - Full Damping Power Under Extreme Stress

This photo illustrates how gas pressure keeps the shock's oil from overheatingBilstein's gas pressure technology has become an established standard in the automotive industry. By employing a chamber of high pressure gas to keep the oil in the absorber under pressure, Bilstein's Gas Pressure Technology prevents the shock from becoming over-heated. Over-heating can cause the oil within the shock to begin foaming. Because this technology prevents over-heating, Bilstein shock absorbers provide full damping power even when the shocks are placed under extreme stress. This feature is most evident in the self-lowering piston.

  • The gas pressure technology allows for a faster responding piston which allows for a higher level of traction and more precise handling.
  • With improved traction and handling comes a safer driving experience.
  • Ideal in performance and sport suspensions.

Road-Tested by Bilstein - for the Ultimate Driving Experience

In order to achieve the perfect driving experience, Bilstein engineers design their products with the driving experience in mind. This allows them to create innovate technologies which provide a safe comfortable ride even under extreme performance conditions. All Bilstein shock absorbers and suspension kits are rigorously tested to perfection.

Bilstein shocks are tested on the Nürgring-Nordschleife In the German town of Nürburg is the Nürburgring motor sport complex. This complex features the Nordschleife, a track where formula one and other races are often held which is comprised of varied driving conditions. This extreme environment is where Bilstein pushes its shocks, struts and suspension kits to the limit. Only when these products can withstand the hardships of this course do they earn the Bilstein label.

Lowering your Vehicle's Suspension

Lowering your vehicle can give it a more sporty and aggressive look. It can give your vehicle the look and feel of a performance vehicle, regardless of its actual level of performance. However, lowering your suspension can effect and enhance the handling of your vehicle as well. Properties like lowering height, spring rate and spring frequency alter the way a vehicle will handle and should be considered when lowering your vehicle. There are two basic types of lowering: Wedge-shaped Lowering and Uniform Lowering.

Bilstein designs and tests its shocks for lowering applications for perfect aerodynamics, spring travel and lowering heights. This makes these absorbers ideal for a comfortable ride that is suitable for everyday use, on or off the track.

This photo illustrates a 10-30mm lowering

10-30mm - Uniform Lowering

To achieve a uniform lowering, all four shocks are lowered by approximately 30mm - 50mm. This will accentuate the sporty appearance of your vehicle. A uniformly lowered suspension will lower the center of gravity without compromising on comfort and spring travel.

20mm Threaded Body Adjustable Range - Give your vehicle Its Own Unique Style

This photo illustrates the difference between +20mm & -20mm on ride height adjustable Bilstein shocksNo two drivers are the same, so give your ride a its own unique style.
