Question Bilstein Front shocks ?

Hi,

Please help me with this:

My father bought on ebay a pair of front bilstein shocks at $ 100.00 usd that I already have on my hands. But I´m not sure that this shocks are Bilstein.

The shocks cames in a Bilstein box that says on hand writing 73-89 911 or 75-84 Turbo.

I have the doubt that this shocks are Bilstein because don´t say the brand and the color is like polished aluminium (the other bilstein shocks that I have are yellow with blue and I know that exist greens and black).

The shock are gas operated and the serial number is :

5195001H002 (housing)

B36-556A-9 ( looks more than bilstein numbers, this are in the plastic or mounts )

I can´t find the serial number in the bilstein web page but I saw that exist diferent shocks for diferent struts (boge,bilstein,koni)

I want to use this shocks on my 914 with 74 911 front supension.

My question are:

1.- Do this shocks are Bilstein ?, if not what brand are ?

2.- My struts are original, then are boge ?

Let me know

thanks and regards

I can't help with your shock question. I just wanted to say Hi and ask if you received my return email the other day.

Eduardo,

I think your best bet is to resell them or get to be good friends with a machinest that can make the appropriate spacers for them to fit.

Good luck....

Looking at the picture, those appear to be the guts of the strut or to rephrase it, they look like a rebuild kit or piston and valve assembly for bilstein struts. It also appears that bilsteins do have internal bump stops.
