Product Details

If your car has a lot of body roll or the rear end is bouncing more than it used to it is time to replace your shock absorbers. Experts agree to not use anything other than original Bilsteins! How can you determine if you do not have the real thing? Look under your car and if your shocks are white, blue, or any color other than black you have imitations. Also, look to see if you have any wetness around the top of the shock barrel. If so they are beginning to leak and will fail soon. Try pushing up and down on the rear end. If it does not stop immediately when you cease pushing then your shocks are probably bad. I am offering this set of two (2) rear shocks at an unbelievable low price (we recommend replacing in pairs). Even if you think your shocks are ok you will be amazed at the improvement when you install these new ones.

Be sure to check out my video on inspection and replacing shock absorbers!
