Thread: Rebuild/revalve Bilstein shocks?

  1. #1

    Default Rebuild/revalve Bilstein shocks?

    Just curious if there would be anyone interested in re valving Bilstein shocks. Wouldn't be the cheapest thing around but again we are gauging the interest to see if its something more than one person would be interested in.

    Thank you for the link, but we also will be offering an external reservoir added along with perches so you can mount smaller diameter springs and the shocks can be valved matching to the spring rate.

    Default Bilstein's upgraded to single and double adjustable, remote reservoir

    To clarify,

    Bilstein does not offer an application for any Mitsubishi Evolution with separate bump and rebound adjustment -double adjustable.
    Bilstein does not offer remote reservoir application for Mitsubishi Evolution.

    The Bilstein service price list applies to those who have dampeners which contain the advanced features, such as double adjustable remote reservoir.
    Therefore, nobody can get from Bilstein anything but a revalve in the case of our Bilstein for Evolutions.

    Consider the following:
    The technicians working on performance suspension at Bilstein, or any other company such as KW, Koni, Ohlin, never considered ride comfort, only track/lap performance.
    Therefore, typical revalve is not suitable for street driven vehicle, perhaps it may be tollerable for some but certanly not enjoyable.

    Since most of us own our cars as daily transportation, but use them as also fun performance backroad and track-day cars, we need a revalve and enhanced features engineered and tuned/optimized for street and track. That is where the M4 product offer fits- it gives an opportunity to use stock MR's or Bilstein HD's to build sophisticated and user tunable suspension.
    Bilstein shocks are designed and built with virtually unrivaled quality and design features, just not garnished with features allowing tunability.
    With the revalve, adjustability, and remote reservoir even, you can have the best finaly optimized for your personal preference and at a cost that you can afford. Perhaps half of cost of Moton's or Flags.

    I have personally enjoyed the performance of such customized Bilsteins in another application, and know others who did the same, so I am speaking with confidence built on personal experience.

    This sounds like a great idea, especially being local. I would be interested. I would be curious what options would be available for those of us that dont have MRs?
