The B8 Sport Duty shock is well known to BMW enthusiasts, as it provides an improved handling and response and a firmer, more planted feel on the road. Each shock and strut features Bilstein's monotube gas pressure technology, valved for better handling and spirited road feel, delivering a sporty ride while retaining remarkable comfort. And all four dampers include Bilstein's Lifetime Warranty, guaranteeing the longevity and performance for years to come.
BimmerWorld is a large stocking dealer of German made Bilstein brand shocks and struts. We've created this helpful and cost effective shock package to make your shopping easier, and assure you get the right B8 Bilstein Sport shocks for your E39 model.
This set is specifically for the E39 6-cylinder models, which include the 1997-2003 5-series 6-cylinder 4-door sedan. You can use this Sport "Performance Plus" shock set on models like the 528i. 525i, and 530i for the model years 1997, 1998,1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003.
The Bilstein B8 Sport shock is ideal for cars with a lowered suspension, and works great with most lowering spring manufacturers (such as H&R, Eibach, and others). These B8 Sport shocks are about 20mm shorter (about 0.75 inch shorter) than a stock E39 shock, making them less likely to bottom out with lowering springs, and making them ideal for cars lowered 1-2" from their stock ride height. (For lowering beyond that, please call us for guidance.)
