2013-2017 RAM 2500 & 3500 | B8 5100 (Dual Steering Damper Kit) :: September 16th, 2017

Bilstein B8 5100 (Dual Steering Damper Kit) is designed as a bolt on auxiliary kit for solid axle 4WD vehicles. This kit features 2 steering dampers offering improved steering isolation.

These steering dampers, by design, have the advantage of controlling even the slightest steering movements to reduce steering wheel shake. With Bilstein B8 5100 (Dual Steering Damper Kit), you will greatly improve the steering feedback and handling of your vehicle.

BILSTEIN is the Authority on MINI Suspension with Comprehensive Lineup :: September 7th, 2017

The sprightly MINI is a car that has captured the attention of enthusiasts, from its inception in the 1960s to current day. These British-born and German-refined machines have found success at the hands of rally champions, private enthusiasts and even Enzo Ferrari – showing their uncanny allure even in the face of their compact size.
Certainly billed as a momentum car, handling has always been at the forefront of the MINI brand identity. BILSTEIN has made it their mission to compliment the original design with a comprehensive line of aftermarket suspension solutions. All the way from the first generation BMW Mini Cooper to the current model, BILSTEIN has engineered a complete line of products from B4 OE replacement dampers to Nürburgring-tested and proven, motorsports-inspired, Clubsport suspension.

To suit performance street driven applications, a selection of application-specific, tuned monotube dampers are available to meet the rigorous demands of sporty drivers, maintaining a competitive price point while supplying a premium product. B6, B8 and B12 struts support the use of OE or lowering springs respectively, for increasingly aggressive lower ride heights.

For enthusiasts looking to heighten their excitement with the thrill of the autocross, an open track day, or just a spirited backroad drive BILSTEIN coilovers provide improved control and driving sensation. B14 and B16 performance suspension systems offer ride height adjustability thanks to threaded shock bodies, and the B16 ups the ante with a 10-stage damping adjustable system to refine rebound and compression characteristics in parallel.

Motorsports-inspired Clubsport suspension is for the serious competitor, with independent damping adjustment, ride-height adjustability, camber-adjustable topmounts and aggressive spring rates this system will take the go-cart sensation of the MINI and push it even further.

For MINI drivers that value the utility of the Countryman and Paceman models, BILSTEIN offers OE replacement B4 application as well as B12 lowering kits for a lower center of gravity and aggressive stance.
