Bilstein Front Left Shock Absorber



Released in 2003, the BMW X3 was designed as a compact follow-up to the X5. This meant that the X3 was an excellent choice for buyers that were looking for an 4x4 with the spaciousness and high driving position of an SUV but weren't interested in the sheer size of the BMW X5. This made it a great choice for tackling the family duties.

If you're looking to replace your BMW X3's shock absorbers, whether you're simply in need of replacement shock absorbers or you're looking at making at upgrade to the X3's handling performance, Bilstein Australia offers the perfect solution with the Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber. With optimum road adhesion, enhanced lane change stability and a larger load carrying capacity, they make for a significant upgrade over the factory items, providing a safer, more enjoyable driving experience and with a long service life, you can be ensured consistent performance for years to come. This is thanks to Bilstein's gas pressure technology and monotube construction in the design of the B6 Sport shock absorber.

The Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber thrives even under loaded driving conditions, meaning that you can enjoy increased levels of handling performance and confidence even when undergoing such tasks as hauling cargo or towing heavy loads.

Because of the X3's front suspension design, the front left and front right shock absorbers possess different part numbers. The Bilstein B6 shock absorber is a direct replacement on the front left of your BMW X3. The standard springs can also be reused, making installation simple.
