BISTEIN SHOCK ABSORBERS
BILSTEIN boasts a history of over 140 years, founded back in 1873. From their humble beginnings in the business of window fittings manufacture, nobody expected BILSTEIN to one day become a household name in the automotive world. High quality standards were given top priority, granting the company’s founder, August Bilstein, an outstanding reputation not only within local regions but also into neighbouring countries.
OUR BILSTEIN SHOCK RANGE
BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL.
The BILSTEIN B6 is ideal gas-pressure shock absorber for those who refuse to compromise between performance or comfort. Made for stock height.
Better vehicle dynamics in any situation.
For shock absorbers heavy loads or trailering are a big challenge. Built to OE quality standards, the BILSTEIN B6 delivers increased performance when demands are high. Even without lowering you will get better vehicle dynamics for a comfortable street performance in town and on the highway.
GAS-PRESSURE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
Our BILSTEIN B4 is the reference for shock absorbers with gas-pressure. Our standard for your car guarantees a perfect driving behaviour – as on the very first day.
For an optimum driving experience and safety.
Over 60 years ago, we developed the monotube gas-pressure shock absorber for series production. The BILSTEIN B4 OE replacement series is available for most passenger cars – in both monotube and twin-tube shock absorber versions.
THE MODEL ATHLETE.
BILSTEIN B8 offers optimal performance with lowering coils, such as King Springs through a shorter body length.
High-performance shock absorbers for sporty cars.
BILSTEIN B8 gas-pressure shock absorbers offer the perfect performance enhancement to go with the sporty look of lowering suspension kits. The specially shortened high-performance shocks guarantee the required spring tension for lowering springs and therefore support the sporting and dynamic driving experience.
BILSTEIN B6 4600.
WHEN THE ROAD RUNS OUT.
The BILSTEIN B6 4600 is the ideal gas-pressure shock absorber for on and off-road use. Wholesale Suspension’s range of B6 shocks suit 2 inch lifts for all popular 4WDs; Hilux, D40, Prado, Triton etc.
Better handling for off-road and on-road.
Precise adjustments in shock design increase the suspension‘s carrying capacity, and reduce uncontrolled movement on SUVs and light trucks. A more confident steering feel guarantees better control of your vehicle, safer handling and increased traction.

WHY CHOOSE BILSTEIN?
Innovation and high-tech in suspension technology – this is what we represent with our experience out of over 60 years OE replacement and 50 years in motorsport. The knowledge of our engineers fuels our products that are found in production sites in Europe, America, and China. Tuning experts and professionals in motorsports also rely on proven and long-lasting quality made by BILSTEIN.
Multiple OEM specified snap ring grooves are featured on select off-road & performance shock absorbers for quick and easy adjustment to your vehicle’s ride height. Shock absorbers with snap-ring ride height adjustment technology are an affordable and better alternative to coil spring spacers when leveling out the front end of your light truck or SUV or only slightly lowering a performance vehicle.
ROAD-TESTED BY BILSTEIN
To achieve that celebrated BILSTEIN driving experience, our BILSTEIN engineers rely not only on technology that is truly at the cutting edge, but also on something that has withstood the test of time: how it feels to the driver. As a result, all of our high-performance shock absorbers, as well as our sport suspensions and threaded ride height adjustable kits, undergo a rigorous testing programme. On the Nürburgring and in our own test centre at the Papenburg test track, our drivers test how balanced the driving characteristics of various vehicles are in a variety of different driving situations. Only when they have passed this programme of tests with distinction they are allowed to bear the BILSTEIN name. This way, we can guarantee that celebrated BILSTEIN driving experience.
