Smile Bilstein b6 hd street shock.

Bilstein b6 hd street shock.

These guys are pretty good. I just recently purchased a set and had them installed on my focus. I did not do the installation myself but it was pretty fast to get them on the car. Work was done by a friend who specializes in subarus at SJsubywerks. Overall I love the feel of the shock, it's not harsh and and its not too soft. I have yet to get them out to autoX yet but I think they will do amazing on the course. I will eventually pair theses up wth a set of sport line springs. I'm also running massive control arms with the shocks for proper alignment for autoX settings.

Great work bilstein

I was considering these because I find the damping of the OE struts isn't always tight enough to fully control spring rebound, depending on the type of surface irregularities. Would you say it's a more *controlled* ride now? (That supple quality that the pros write about, where you get great handling and feel - without the ride being harsh.)
