Bilstein Sport (SP) Shocks
Are you on a budget and looking to improve your car's handling performance but don't want to compromise ride quality? The Bilstein Sport Shock set for BMW E46 3 series might just be the perfect solution.
Most OEM Factory shocks are made with shock bodies cut from a piece of steel tubing, stamped internal parts, and have compromised tolerances.
In contrast, Bilstein's shock bodies are precision built through a unique, seamless extrusion process. This gives the shocks superior strength along with high quality finishes. The completed shock bodies are then moved into the next stage of building where the shafts are polished and chrome plated, and fitted with machined valving components and the highest quality seals. Due to their extreme attention to detail, Bilstein provides you with the closest product to a hand built shock available today all for an affordable price.
These shocks work best with an aftermarket spring combination, although it would work fine with OEM factory shocks.
The tube of a Bilstein Gas Pressure Shock Absorber is fabricated using a special extrusion method. This process achieves an extremely tight peak-to-valley tolerance and maintains consistent wall thickness. Bilstein's seamless monotube design provides superior tube strength while maximizing heat dissipation and shock life.
