Over 80 years ago, since Bilstein provided the chrome-plated bumpers for Germany’s very first mass-produced cars, Bilstein has been about innovation and excellence. Over the decades between then and now, Bilstein has dedicated itself to producing the very best suspension systems available. The aim has always been to produce the best components that deliver excellence in ride quality, safety and comfort.
For example, Bilstein developed the very first mono-tube gas pressure shock absorbers in 1957 – teaming with Mercedes, which offered a far more comfortable and responsive shock than traditional telescopic shock absorbers.
From there, Bilstein grew and grew. Decades of involvement with racing teams across Europe only helped the Bilstein reputation. With expertise and an unmatched history, Bilstein is dedicated to delivering the very best.
In order to develop and create the very best suspension systems and components, Bilstein oversees every step of the life of a component – from the drawing board to the moment it leaves the shop floor.
Bilstein uses its own dedicated engineers in factories in Europe to design and test every part – from each bolt to the whole suspension system, to make sure that everything meet their high standards.Bilstein believes that its components should always deliver the best, and that is why they offer a two-year warranty on each suspension component.
Bilstein recognises that a suspension system will experience many different road surfaces and environmental stresses over the years, so they test every component to the limit. Bilstein know a suspension system does its best work when under the most strain, and their strict testing means a Bilstein part will never let you down.

Bilstein has a wide range of different options for lowering your vehicle. Bilstein provides many different set ups, meaning that you never have to settle for anything less than perfect.
For example, the Bilstein B14, as well as lowering a vehicle by 30-50mm has an adjustable range of up to 20mm across both axles. This means that whatever you want – a lower sportier look, or a higher profile for a harsh surface, BILSTEN has you covered.
Each Bilstein lowering kit uses the best materials and their patented Triple-C-Technology to ensure that corrosion is never an issue.
Whatever you are looking for – a sporty, low profile and suspension, or something that can handle the rugged outdoors, Bilstein offers the best possible solution.
Quality and performance are at the centre of everything Bilstein does and this is obvious in every part, no matter how big or how small.
