Any additional comments?
This was probably the most disappointing product i've installed. Biggest problem was that Bilstein clearly did not develop this kit. The spring rates do not match at all to the weight or weight balance of the car. They also used a poorly (yet strong) designed endlink mount. Beyond this, these are actually very strong and quality dampers. For the price they are not worth it, considering i have to spend another 1000+ dollars on new springs and strut plates.
