Link?

I've dealt with Bilsteins forever on so many different cars, and Bilstein supplies dampers to everyone from Japanese OEM to German factory motorsports teams. I'm very hesitant to believe internet rumor that Bilstein would drop in quality.

No, you would have to make a sig that doesn't look like somebody else's, simple as that. Art majors, always making things more complex than they need to be.

I might be tempted to do a full ZHP shock and strut swap. For the rear shocks, what peripherals would I need if I did? I know I need bump stops, but what about stuff like shock mounts or anything else?
That's a clever idea with the bumper...
