A very common question when it comes to shocks that I get is, "What is the biggest difference between all the shocks?" or "Why are the Bilstein so much more money over the other shocks?" or even " Are they really that much better then KYB or KONI?"
Well here is the answer to that.
There is a reason the Bilstein's do cost more, and there is a performance difference between all of the shocks. Bilstein shocks carry a lifetime warranty unlike KYB or KONI. Bilstein shocks and struts will last 4 times longer then the Orginal Equipment shocks and struts. They are also designed to improve the ride, handling and control of your vehicle. Bilstien is able to do this due to the quality of the shocks material and the specially designed valving system that Bilstien has designed. Bilstein has been in busniess longer then I can remember and for years manufactures have been trying to copy what they do, and have not been able to come close. This is because of Bilstein's extensive research and the quality of material used to build there shocks and struts. By using top notch quality material when building there shocks and struts, is the main reason you end up with a product that works so well and is able to carry a lifetime warranty.
In my opinion, the Bilstein Shocks are well worth the money and will dramatically improve the comfort and ride quality of your vehicle. If you are looking for a way to improve the ride quality and performance of your vehicle, Bilstein is the way to go. Don't settle for second best when you can have the best built shock in the business.
