1987-1993 Mustang LX Rear 46mm Monotube Shock bil24-021487 Bilstein
Performance shock absorbers and struts have been designed to provide improved handling and ride control without deteroriating the quality of the of your driving experience. Repeatable performance is achieved by using high gas pressure, monotube design with a large diameter shock body. HD series shocks should only be used on vehicles that have not been lowered
Bilstein shocks are manufactured with the rod pointing down into the strut tube, thereby utilizing the thicker, more robust body portion of the shock absorber to minimize side loads. Due to the increased diameter and surface of the pressure tube, the Bilstein gas pressure strut/insert or shock is better suited to take increased side loads when compared with the conventional more commonly used by rod pointing up design.
Historically speaking Bilstein has been involved in many different syles of motorsports resulting in a design that include greater stability, better road handling, and accurate steering. These highly refined design and manufacturing principles, combined with extremely high quality materials, means Bilsteins will last approximately four times as long as OE shocks and struts. Bilstein products are backed by an aftermarket lifetime warranty.
Bilstein’s shock bodies are precision formed through a unique seamless extrusion process. This provides superior strength along with high finish tolerances. The shock body is then treated with a special paint finish durable enough to withstand grueling 240-hour salt spray tests. The finished body is mated with a solid, induction-hardened steel chrome plated and polished shaft, machined valving components and highest quality seals.
1987-1993 Mustang LX Rear 46mm Monotube Shock bil24-021487 Minimizing Heat Destruction of the Seals and Prevention of “Foaming” of the Oil. Conventional shock designs trap the heat within the shock body and prevent adequate dissipation, making them prone to excessive heat, fading and potential failure. The design of the shock body allows the heat to dissipate into the tubular portion of the shock performing like a radiator. The dividing piston also permits the oil to expand as heat builds, preventing foaming of the oil resulting in cavitation and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain complete operating characteristics as the oil temperatures rise.
Bilstein’s seamless monotube design provides superior tube strength while maximizing heat dissipation and shock life. The tube of a Bilstein gas pressure shock or strut is fabricated using a special extrusion method. This process achieves an extremely tight peak-to-valley tolerance and maintains consistent wall thickness.
The piston head design allows independent tuning of the compression and rebound damping forces to provide optimum ride comfort and performance without compromise. It features fewer parts than most conventional designs. The product’s simple, yet exceptionally functional design contributes to the extreme durability and long life of Bilstein Shock Absorbers.
