Ok... well not toooo much to update because I've only driven on them for about 3 days now (picked the car up Friday after work)... but I'm loving the new feel of my car!excellent Ivandr. looking forward to your updates.
this is a great write up. Just curious any reason why you decided to go with the bilstein HD for the front vs the Bilstein sport for the front?
I was thinking of doing the same setup as you are desribing on my AWD.
Thats a good thought... to be honest I'm not sure if your explanation or mine is the right one... I'm a car enthusiast but not to this level of detail... anyone else have thoughts?FYI, I'm not sure that Bilstein Sport or HD would change the front height of the vehicle.
My understanding is that yes the piston rods are shorter but the main body housing is the same height.
I believe the reason they made the sport version is for lowered cars and likely to allow better use of the shock absorber.
If your car is lowered the starting point of the HD piston will already be somewhat compressed while the Sport version will start at the beginning the way it was meant to using more efficiently the dampening mechanism.
Well at least that's what I think . . . It's possible their is a slight variation but I doubt it would be visible. Don't take my words for it...
