Evolving from a history of worldwide racing dominance, Bilstein has developed the ultimate automotive performance suspension systems. To insure maximum performance, these systems utilize Bilstein's superior monotube gas shocks, featuring: Largest available piston diameter for greater sensitivity and precise control. Patented digressive piston head design and deflective valving instantly reacts to changing road conditions. Monotube design dissipates heat more effectively than a twin tube shock for cooler, more efficient operation and longer life. Lighter weight reduces wear and tear on suspension components. The Bilstein PSS Suspension allows you to adjust your vehicle's ride height without the expense of the fully adjustable damping system. This system features both coilover and standard monotube gas pressure shocks with performance level valving along with application specific, progressive rate coil springs. The PSS system lets you set your car low and tight for optimum performance or back to a more stock like ride height and handling characteristics. Ride height adjustments can be made on the vehicle without removing the suspension. The solid aluminum spring seat and lock nut allows a selective adjustment of the vehicle's ride height. Spring travel and vehicle body height change, but the spring seat remains pre-loaded throughout the allowable range of adjustment. The Bilstein PSS 9 Suspension provides the ultimate in performance tuning. The fully-adjustable monotube gas shock absorbers offer a selection of nine precise compression and rebound settings, from comfort to competition. The front and rear progressive rate springs allow accurate adjustment of the vehicle ride height and center of gravity for the level of performance you seek. Now you can enjoy the kind of precise suspension tuning formerly available only on race cars. The PSS 9 system puts you in complete control. Whether it's a weekend of competition or the daily commute, absolute handling and control are just a few twists away.
