    Shock Oil?

    This is correct, generally Bilstein off road race applications use F&L red. Standard Bilstein oil is well proven worldwide for everything that dosent see the temps get to 250+ for extended periods. Ragarding temps taken on a Bilstein they should be measured at the black aluminum top cap or...

    F-150 Leveling

    Think of the Bilstein as a leveling kit with a free shock and it makes much more sense.

    Mini Stock Suspension Questions

    The shocks pictured are twin tube while the Bilstein is a monotube. Twin and mono are not even in the same performance category although for the layman they might look similar.

    Have you seen the Dirt Kings mag cover?

    Never heard of this magazine or knew my company was advertizing there. I cant speak officially for one company on this list but will pass on the feedback from the RDC community to the marketing department.

    Fox Evol or Elkas ???

    The race team that ran the Bilsteins last weekend were reportedly grinning from ear to ear and finished 3rd with the new setup.

    Fox Evol or Elkas ???

    That sounds like something I would say... Contact Ryan Wheeler at Epic racing for more info on the Bilstein 450 and 700 Bilstein products. The Bilstein patented Anti Cavitation Valve (ACV) works amazingly well on these bikes.

    Joel @ Bilstein here, hopefully someone in the desert race community has a FRED chassis and can use a free set of shocks! (As a note I am not personally involved with this project but posting on behalf of the Bilstein R&D department)...

    convert smooth bodies to C/O

    It should be possible to order a pair of tubes and coil hardware to convert the shocks. Of course ordering spare parts is always more expensive after the initial purchase. You might try to find a pair of used coilovers and sell what you have.

    shock oil

    Temperature is only one factor contributing to discolored oil. Taking your temp gun along to see the differance of the coil and bypass is standard practice to make sure you arent working one pair of shocks drastically more than the other.

    Toyota MTEG Stadium Truck Build

    Re: Rear Shocks I dont believe there has been a significant change in materials. The 8mmID shims still come from Germany as they always have.
