New Bilstein Stuts
AJ-USA in San Diego had a great sale on Bilstein products so I was finally able to replace the GT500 Tokicko's on the front of my car with a pair of Bilstein B6's. Boy what a difference! The car no longer has that lousy ricer-boy e-bay China-mart jarring cheapo suspension feel. For lack of a better description, the car feels smoother and more sophisticated. The car feels more like the suspension is working with the road instead of just going over everything passing annoyances into the cabin. This is the ride every Bullitt should have came with.
Just FYI, this is my second great experience with Bilstein B-6's. I had a HORRIBLE experience with Shockwarehouse.Com on an expensive full KYB suspension I ordered for my wife's Chrysler 300. Shockwarehouse sent me the wrong front struts and it took me weeks of hard follow-up just to get a response and return refund number from them. (I had to pay to ship them back.) On top of that, the correct upscale KYB's I ordered were complete garbage turning the Chrysler's former limo-like ride into a poor handling cement mixer. (I'm wondering if KYB is now subbing out their fomerly excellent manufacturing to some sub-standard Chinese factory?) Once again Shockwarehouse.com was non-responsive for weeks on my warranty claim so I went directly to KYB's factory reps who were about as helpful as an Obamacare call center. Finally, again after weeks, I was able to ship them back under warranty, but again, I am out shipping costs (total shipping costs out of my pocket: $90). The Bilsteins on my wife's car are awesome and the land yacht rides and handles better than it ever did. So my advice- RUN DON'T WALK from anything to do with Shockwarehouse or KYB suspension.
