Item Details

Valving: 381#/233# Linear
Mounting Type: T-Bar to Pin
  • Nitrogen Gas Charged
    • Puts shock oil under pressure to totally prevent cavitation (foaming) and shock fade
  • Dividing Piston w/ O-ring
    • Separates gas and oil and is moveable to accommodate rod movement into the tube
    • Bilstein shocks are NOT gas/oil emulsion shocks
  • Monotube Body
    • Inside wall has finished tolerances of an engine cylinder
    • Outer surface is cadmium or nickel plated for durability
    • Single tube design dissipates heat more effectively than twin-tube.
  • Working Piston
    • Consists of patented deflective disc valve stack for precise performance
    • Bilstein discs are spring steel which outperform stainless steel and produce longer life
    • Piston uses powder metal technology
  • Oil Chamber
    • Special oil is pressurized by the gas area onto the dividing piston to prevent cavitation (foaming) for consistent, fade-free performance
  • Piston Rod
    • Case-hardened and highly polished steel strong enough to lift 20 tons
  • Rod Guide and Seals
    • High pressure Viton inner rod guide seals ensure a perfect fit for consistent, fade-free damping and long life performance
