There is nothing, quite literally, nothing like driving a Mustang with Bilstein Shocks. Unbelievable control. Precise handling. Ultimate performance. And incredible comfort.Superior Design from Advanced Technology
Bilstein has always been a driving force in the development of automotive suspension technology.
Bilstein introduced the world’s first monotube gas pressure shock absorber and no other shock manufacturer has been able to equal the performance and enhanced ride characteristics or broad range of applications. From worldwide motorsports competition, to original equipment on the finest sedans, trucks, SUVs and motorhomes; Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers have proven to be the best...unbelievable control,
precise handling, incredible comfort and durable performance.The Advantage of Bilstein’s Monotube Design
Heat is one of the major detriments to the performance and longevity of any shock absorber. Conventional designed shocks trap the heat within the shock body and do not let it adequately dissipate, making them prone to heat build up, fade and eventual failure.
Bilstein’s technically superior, monotube gas charged design allows the excessive heat from the oil to transfer
to the outer surface of the shock body and dissipate more efficiently. Gas pressure on the dividing piston exerts
force on the oil column which prevents aeration (foaming) and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain
full damping characteristics under all conditions.
