Of all a vehicle's suspension components, nothing works harder than the shock
absorbers, making it critical to pick the right one. Bilstein Shock Absorbers
are the least expensive, fastest way, to dramatically improve the ride, handling
and control of a vehicle.
Digressive Working Piston Assembly
The piston head
design allows independent tuning of the compression and rebound damping
forces to provide optimum ride comfort and performance without compromise.
It features fewer parts than most conventional twin tube and so call
"adjustable" shock designs. This simple, yet exceptional
functional digressive design contributes to the extreme durability and
long life of Bilstein Shock Absorbers.
The photo below dramatically
illustrates the size difference between the working piston inside a Bilstein
monotube shock and one found in a typical "twin tube" shock.

The Bilstein has a 228% larger surface than the
average conventional twin tube piston offering greater sensitivity and
superior vehicle control.
