Bilstein Front Right Shock Absorber



With the introduction of BMW's flagship SUV, the X5 way back in 1999 came an enormous amount of praise, offering an unparalleled amount of on-road handling performance previously unheard of in such large luxury SUVs of the time. Offering all the size and real-world practicality of an SUV with the kind of outstanding driving dynamics that BMW had built its reputation upon, the X5 was a real winner.

If you're looking to improve on the X5's already respectable on-road manners, and upgrade to the 4WD's suspension is definitely one of the first things to consider. Bilstein Australia offers the perfect solution for your BMW X5 with the B6 Sport shock absorbers. The Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber utilises gas pressure technology and monotube construction, meaning that they provide a significant improvement of the factory suspension as well a wide range of handling benefits. Offering optimum road adhesion and enhanced lane change stability, the B6 Sport shock absorber ensures a safer, more enjoyable driving experience day in and day out.

The Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber continues to perform, even during loaded driving conditions. This means that you can travel with cargo, passengers, or even whilst hauling off the back off that tow hitch with an added level of confidence. The B6 Sport shock absorber also offers a long service life, meaning that they'll continue to perform for years and years.

Due to the X5's front suspension design, the front left and front right shock absorbers possess different part numbers. The Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber is a direct replacement on the front right of your BMW X5 and with the added benefit of being able to reuse the standard springs, you can be assured straight-forward installation and a perfect fit.
