BILSTEIN introduced the very first monotube gas pressure shock absorber to the extremely challenging world of off-road racing. It didn’t take long for Baja racers to recognize the superior performance that this new technology provided and the wins started stacking up. In fact, some of off-road racing's most renowned drivers have won on BILSTEIN shocks
These are darn good. Expensive for what you get. For the price I would expect a beefier shock. I blew one out after 80k miles. I do a lot of offroading. Not necessarily 4x4ing, but offroading. Fast moving, washboard of all kinds. Mojave Desert stuff.
