Bilsteins at this point are ancient technology for these cars. They work but they have a harsh way of soaking up major bumps because they always compress stiffly.

The next step up is a tremendous leap forward and that is Fox shocks. They are adjustable with less unsprung weight due to the two piece mounting and proven to drop lap times significantly over Bilstein, and be more comfortable to boot because they are less stiff in absorbing bumps and also adjust to the road surface better for more grip.

I can't afford them right now....I guess I will run my Bilstein Sports for a while longer.

One thing people like to do is re-valve the Bilstein for their exact application, and that is a step better than stock and pretty cost effective.

If you like what you got, just drive it.
