Since their inception over 40 years ago, Bilstein has been a unique and driving force in the automotive suspension industry. Bilstein was first to apply the patented gas pressure principle to controlling ride characteristics on automobiles and introduced the world's first monotube gas pressure shock absorber. Today, Bilstein continues to be the leader in monotube gas pressure shock absorber technology. No other shock manufacturer has been able to equal the performance and enhanced ride characteristics of Bilstein. The Bilstein name graces not only monotube gas pressure shock absorbers, but also single and twin tube Macpherson strut style suspensions.
From racing and testing in Formula 1, NASCAR, SCCA, Rally, and off-road racing to original equipment on BMW, Ferrari, Jaguar, MercedesBenz, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota, GM, Ford, and Chrysler vehicles, Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorbers have proven to be the best. And whether it be the high banks of NASCAR racing or the harsh terrain of the BAJA 1000, Bilsteinís worldwide racing dominance is legendary. Racing is the ultimate proving ground, making success in motorsports imperative.
As racing suspension technology pushes the limits, it takes a superior shock absorber to provide the higher degree of control necessary for the vehicle to remain predictable and stable at ever increasing high speeds and G-forces. Bilstein has met this challenge. From lightweight mini race shocks to the massive 60mm 9100 Series, Bilstein offers a full line of competition shock absorbers, components and support.
