Front shocks - Bilstein?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, some advice pls. I have an ‘81 backdated SC which has covered around 100k so assumed it might be time to treat it to some new front shocks. I didn’t want it too firm, just well damped (as standard) so went for Bilstein inserts. I also asked the garage to lower it slightly as it seemed to be sitting g quite high. Having now driven it on average A & B roads it feels like it’s been set up for track  days - not crashing over bumps just very (very!) firm to dips in the road aren’t smoothed out (if that makes sense). I assumed it may because it’s been lowered by 10-15mm so I wound the splines back up a bit. Has anyone else experienced this and has anyone found a better set up? Many thanks

Ps. The top of Bilstein shocks (the bit you can see from the outside) is bright green. I’m hoping these are the standard bilstein, not the racing ones??
