Bilstein Shock Absorbers


Meezo

Recommended Posts

My mechanic told me that over time, traditional shocks lose efficiency and eventually fail, causing excessive tire and suspension component wear. While Bilstein shock absorbers continue to perform at their best for the rest of their lives. So I'm thinking of purchasing Bilstein shocks for my truck. :)

Welcome to the forum.

 

The '94 Grand Cherokee I special ordered 27 years ago w/ the Up County Suspension Group included special Bilstein shocks that are still going strong.

 

They have recently been freshened w/ sanding and painting.

My '06 Sierra had OEM Bilsteins on it, IIRC, but I replaced those with Rancho 5000s around 100k miles.  Now, with over 305k, my truck gets new parts when they're needed (instead of upgrades or preventive maintenance replacement), and given the number of original parts on my truck I wonder if the Bilsteins might have still been semi-serviceable.
