Many consider Bilstein's Heavy Duty Touring line to be among the best handling damper set for A5 and MkVI chassis cars. These gas pressurized struts and shocks will raise your car slightly (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch) and dramatically firm the ride, improve steering response, and reduce suspension bottoming. The dampers have about 40 lbs of pressure, effectively increasing your spring rates.
The set includes 2 struts and 2 shocks. It does not include springs.
We strongly recommend replacing all strut and shock mounts when installing a new suspension. Worn front strut mounts can negatively affect alignment, steering handling as well degrade ride quality. Worn rear mounts can cause knocking/rattling noises as the shock is no longer held securely in a worn mount.
The rear shock mounts include new mounts, new bump stops and new shock boot dust covers.
