There are a ton of good options for coilovers on the market right now and we sell and rebuild them all but there are a couple things that make the 8125s stand apart. These coilovers are built locally, just down the road from our shop in San Diego. Bilstein uses the largest body possible in this category and their oversized 2.6" reservoir helps provide an additional resistance to heat and shock fade. There isn't a 2.5" coilover on the market that can hold as much synthetic high temp oil as the 8125s when compared side by side. The more oil volume the cooler your shocks run and the better your ride.
The valving profile of the 60mm shocks has quite a bit more rebound than the standard valving the 46mm shocks are built with (370/110 vs 255/100 respectively), this is well suited for a heavier truck or a lighter truck using a shorter stroke coil over (for a higher linear spring rate) or low speed rock crawling. Typically I will swap out the digressive piston for a linear piston and run a custom valve stack on them for higher speed applications (like in the video below), you can shoot me an e-mail for questions about getting your coilovers custom tuned. The overall build quality of the shock ranks very highly, which is what you would expect from the company that invented the modern shock absorber over 60 years ago. The time/money Bilstein doesn't spend on advertising, flashy colors, or cool hats... they do spend on research, design, and engineering.
We also carry rebuild kits, eyelets, replacement parts, shock oil etc. and keep most of it on the shelf and ready to ship. As of right now the common sizes of the 8125s need built but are typically ready in less than 8 weeks, which is about 1/4 the lead time of other popular brands. You can always email us to inquire about what is in stock and ready to ship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When the company that builds shocks for Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, and Tesla builds an off-road suspension piece, you know you're in for something special. Not to mention the fact that they INVENTED the modern shock absorber and have only improved it time and again since they first created it. What we offer today is unrecognizable to the first monotube, gas pressure shock absorber that rolled off the line on a Mercedez in 1957 but one thing hasn't changed since then... the dedication to quality above all else that you would expect from a company that builds original equipment dampers for super cars.
