Latest Bilstein News

CAD vs. USD :: August 6th, 2015


Due to recent domestic and global conditions, the value of the Canadian dollar has drastically weakened against the US dollar. In recent weeks the Canadian dollar has hit a 10 year low when compared to US currency. As a result, we find ourselves unable to continue to absorb this and therefore must implement a price increase on all Bilstein products.

We realize that this is not welcome news for you, and in the event that the Canadian dollar strengthens against the US dollar, we will decrease pricing accordingly. We hope that you understand that this change is due to factors beyond our control. We will still be offering free shipping on all online purchases.

Thank you for your understanding
