    I believe he means Better valving, which would make it a better shock.

    no.... if u go to sam strano's website..... http://www.stranoparts.com he has a set of bilsteins on there that are his specific setup. they are the regular bilsteins in the front but with a different bilstein similar to the one used on 3rd gen f-bodys for the rear. supposed to give a better ride and control out back with his setup compared to the slp setup.

    i think he mentioned to me that he didnt offer revalving bilstein shocks any longer.. i have talked to mr. strano quite a bit in the past month or so.

    so in general you are pleased with the strano/ SLP Bilstein setup then (put aside that the rears are revalved?)

    He means that, when available, I will use a different rear shocks than the standard HD's or SLP's. Just a bit of a different valving. But these days they are hard to get, and are not on sale like the SLP shocks currently are.
