Q & A

What's in the Box

Bilstein's street rod shocks are considered by many to be the best money can buy. By using a monotube design, the piston diameter can be larger and reacts better to changing road conditions.

The shocks are also correctly valved for the rear of your car to give you the most comfortable ride in a non-adjustable shock. Has 5/8" I.D. mounting eyes.

Kit includes: One Bilstein rear coilover and a Carrera spring (several spring rates available)

Notes

  1. For coilover # 2131325-RATE, the 275 lb. spring is no longer available.

Coil-Over Shock Mount Support
SKU-91636010
                        

Speedway sells the ONLY fully engineered shock mount. The 5/8" forged button head bolt looks good while offering maximum support.  The 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" billet aluminum support spacer has internal threads. This allows you to properly support this shock without crushing the bushing like others do, which leads to shock failures. There's a reason major chassis builders use this mount.

  • Billet aluminum
  • 4-1/2" from base of head to end of threads
  • 1-1/4" shock mount base
  • Safely mounts to brackets 1/2" thick
  • Includes required washers and nylon lock nut
  • Mounts sold individually
