Hey guys-

As the subject states, I'll be ordering Bilsteins this week and have seen both sets. What is better for our application? As an FYI, I have H&R SS springs, Maximum Motorsports LCA's and FRPP uppers, MM caster camber plates, etc. I don't want to spend the $ on the MM custom valved Bilsteins, so that's not really an option. Thanks all!

call maximum motorsports and ask them the differences. their website isn't very helpful in showing the differences between them all, but they do know their stuff!

The Sports should be fine I have a friend running H&R Race springs with the sport and has no problems.

I know the valves r different dont know much else. Oh I think the HD's r better for the coil over kit.

I just did this very thing last weekend. Went with the HD's, not sure the difference between the two. I do know the HD's were factory on the Cobra's. I have MM's LCA's and FRPP caster camber plates. It rides like a new car. I am completely happy. You can get a set from StangSuspension for 535.00 and some change for the whole set. You can't go wrong with either one.

I talked to someone at shox.com (very helpful and good prices, btw!).

He indicated there was No difference that we would see daily-driving. And there is not a rear sport shock anyway (the bilstein part number is the same for the rears whether I asked for the set to be "sport" or "HD"). The way I took what he was saying to me is the sports just would just cost me more. Bilsteins all have the same basic internals, are rebuildable and last virtually forever.

I did not end up buying them as I am still kicking around the adjustable tockicos... but that is my current understanding of bilsteins. I would just go with what was cheapest (HD)... unless you Auto-X or something competitively...

If I remember correctly, I think I read somewhere that the Bilsteins were warrantied for life. Correct me if I am wrong.
