Bilstein Dampers and a 2" lift

Postby jimboree » Thu Mar 12, 2015 4:38 pm

I'm considering getting some Bilstein dampers for my 88" coil-sprung 300Tdi hybrid. I'm using red and white springs all round which gives me around 2" of lift. Bilstein don't do a +2" spring, does anyone have any experience of using these dampers with raised suspension?

Back is easy just run -2 mounts (to be honest unless you are really hammering it you won't notice a difference ), front ideally you want -1 mounts or shorten your turrets but same as the back you won't have any problems , fit em and don't worry about it , the big issues come if you are using lowered springs and the shockers bottom out (red whites are RR rear springs anyway and are standard length but slightly longer free length , I run standard length shockers on my motor btw
