    Since Bilstiens suck now I think you will see a significant change.

    I just posted a thread a few days ago about shocks and got info on this.

    Sam Strano, suspension guru and seller of Bilsteins, no longer reccomends them. Apparently they changed somehting, and now quality/performance has suffered.

    Check out my thread about soft shocks, there's more info there.

    You could call Sam Strano. That would be the most informative way to go. From what I have heard (from him) they completely messed up by making a new design. It was supposed to be better but wasn't.

    I'd go with Koni's. I have heard good things from people. Yes its a few hundred more, but from what I have heard shocks last around 50k miles. Its worth the better ride for that small of an amount.

    Dude, what do you mean "all mad"? I just made a comment. And since Bilsteins were discussed there, I thought it might help him. Sorry I tried to help the guy out.
