Many consider Bilstein's Heavy Duty Touring line to be among the best handling damper set for A4 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. These are the dampers included in the Shine Real Street suspension setup.
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 and handling as well as ride quality. Worn rear mounts can cause knocking/rattling noises as the shock is no longer held securely in a worn mount.
The front struts have built-in bump stops.
