The Volkswagen Transporter is available in countless body styles to suit whatever application, and of course, some applications require an increased in ground clearance which would mean raising the Transporter's suspension. If you plan on doing this, upgrading your shock absorbers is a must to help maintain safe handling.

To help combat this, Bilstein Australia offers the perfect solution in the Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorbers.

After 13 years, the Volkswagen Transporter finally saw a model update in the T5 with the T6 being released in 2016. The updated Transporter offered everything that made the T3 so great, all whilst offering more options, more features and numerous refinements, including updated styling. Again, the updated Transporter was available in a wide range of body styles to suit just about any application you can think of.

Thanks to Bilstein's gas pressure technology and monotube construction, the Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber offers a plethora of handling improvements over the standard shock absorbers. Improved control and stability, more precise handling and an increase in load carrying capacity are just some of the benefits you can expect to see, and are all extremely valuable when dealing with commercial vehicle such as the Transporter, making the vehicle retains safe handling dynamics even when loaded. A long service life means that they'll continue to offer consistent performance long after they've been fitted to your Transporter.

The Bilstein B6 Sport shock absorber has been developed as a direct bolt-on replacement for the front of your raised Volkswagen Transporter. This means that the installation process is simple and straightforward.
