Bilsteins without lifting
 
Im one of the few I guess, that likes the factory rake on my sport. but at 80k the stock struts are shot. lots of posts from theorists, but none from anyone that has installed bilsteins and kept the factory rake. there must be one or two out there somewhere! would the lowest setting keep the factory rake? Ive even emailed a few online sellers and they couldn't answer me. any help out there?

yes there is a "0" setting. it will retain your rake. I think there may even be a bilstein shock that isn't adjustable

Yup, what gonefishin said ^^ if you want a stock set up just get the non adjustable ones as they will probably be cheaper. Or the adjustable ones on the lowest setting.

What they said lol. But I think the "0" setting adds an inch because they are longer than stock struts.

uhh i don't think so. at least for the 3rd gens. they are the same exact size. I remember vividly because my dad didn't understand how they "lift" the front if they are the same exact size as OEM.

We do offer the non adjustable Bilstein 4600 series HD front shocks. They are cheaper than the adjustables.

^^^^^ that's what I would do if you know you have no plans on leveling in the future

I just purchased a set of Bilstein 5100 Series Ride Height Adjustable - Front shocks from "AutoAnything" (http://www.autoanything.com/suspensi...FZRj7AodJ2EAlg)

Shocks were about $100/each, but I received a 10% discount by asking the autoanything.com chat rep, so it resulted in $20 off. So, shocks were $180, FREE FEDEX shipping, and my local shop will install them for $75 as soon as I get them in.

Good luck with your project.

Well, I guess they gotta make a little bit of profit. :smiley_thumbs_up:

I'm happy with the price.
