Due to their larger tires and heightened stance, lifted vehicles place extra demands on a shock absorbers damping ability. The 5100 Series monotube design and patented digressive valving is uniquely suited to confront these demands. On or off-road, loaded or unloaded, BILSTEIN shocks instantly react to changing road inputs to maintain a stable, controlled and comfortable ride.
While the ThyssenKrupp Bilstein Company began as a German enterprise, Bilstein shocks are developed and manufactured in Hamilton, Ohio. Bilstein develops and fabricates premium quality monotube shock absorbers directly for automobile manufactures, aftermarket outfits and motorsports applications. The precision and craftsmanship in manufacturing that fueled company growth in Germany were brought straight to the factory in Hamilton, Ohio. The factory includes an engineering department, rigorous shock testing facility and a motorsports track. The track allows the engineers to tweak their designs in response to real world testing during development. The rigorous testing allows for designs to go through a machine simulated life of a shock absorber in all kinds of terrain conditions. The resulting products promise the highest in performance.
