You have to tell them what springs/torsion bars you are using and what your application is (street, track etc.)
Exactly.
I called Ramone over at Bilstein NA and he was a gem to me. They revalved my inserts and rear shocks and replaced any worn parts. Pricing was fair and they turned it around quickly. They also supplied new bump stops which you were talking about in your other posts and which I found impossoble to source anywhere.
He needs to know your torsion bar sizes and how you intend to drive the car.
I think there is a spec sheet to fill out for the service that gets shipped in with the shocks.
Then you can say you have custom valved shocks for your car!
