Description
BILSTEIN B8 - Performance you can feel and use for your Mini Cooper!  Although there are other brands of monotube gas shocks making an appearance in America’s pit areas, Bilstein technology is so far ahead and so different, that their performance cannot be equaled. Bilstein's gas charged monotube designs are far superior in quality, performance, and durability compared to the 'less-expensive' twin-tube designs (twintube technology is relatively unsophisticated and very low cost to produce).

Fits the following models:

2014-2020 F56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door

NOTE: Not compatible with the factory Adaptive Damper option.

Available in Heavy Duty or Sport versions. Each shock sold individually. Select accordingly.

Bilstein B8 Sport monotube shocks and struts deliver absolute mastery of the road surface for the performance-minded driver. Designed to push a car's suspension to its performance peak, these shocks are specifically suited for use with special lowering springs in combination with anti-sway bars or other suspension upgrades. (yellow paint, steel body)

Product benefits at a glance:

  • Shortened high-performance shock aborbers for virtually every lowering spring set and series production sport vehicles
  • Sports settings with high level of comfort
  • Marked improvement in safety and performance with additional spring changes (lowering)
  • BILSTEIN gas pressure technology
  • BILSTEIN mono-tube / Upside-Down technology, made in Germany
  • Road and track tested by BILSTEIN for fine tuning

Why Bilstein Shock Absorbers?

[ ] Because the valvings are consistent, your set-ups will be more precise.

[ ] Bilstein’s larger piston and deflective disc valving develop control force when you need it, at the slightest movement of the suspension. You’ll get weight transfer when you need it, better control under braking and your tires will stay on the track through the rough spots

[ ] Bilstein shocks don’t fade. Your chassis will handle as good at the end of the race as it did at the start

[ ] Bilstein shocks are rugged. They last for years and are rebuildable and revalvable.

[ ] When the advantages of Bilstein gas pressure shocks are tallied up, you will have spent less money on shock absorbers and collected more money at the pay window.

The Bilstein Principle

All Bilstein gas pressure struts/inserts and gas pressure shock absorbers operate on the same principle. They are manufactured with the rod pointing down into the strut tube, thereby utilizing the thicker, stouter body portion of the shock absorber to dissipate side loads. Consequently, due to the increased diameter and surface of the pressure tube, the Bilstein gas pressure strut/insert or shock is better suited to take increased side loads when compared with the conventional version.

Additional advantages, based on development strongly influenced by the motorsport industry, include greater stability, better road handling, and accurate steering. This combined with extremely high quality manufacturing and materials, means Bilsteins will last approximately four times as long as Original Equipment.

Battling Heat Build Up

Conventional shocks trap the heat within the shock body and prevent adequate dissipation, making them prone to heat build up, fade and eventual failure.

Bilstein's patented design allows the excessive heat from the oil to transfer to the outer surface of the shock body and dissipate more efficiently. The dividing piston also permits the oil to expand as heat builds, preventing aeration (foaming) and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain full damping characteristics as temperatures rise.

The tube of a Bilstein gas pressure shock or strut is fabricated using a special extrusion method. This process achieves an extremely tight peak-to-valley tolerance and maintains consistent wall thickness. Bilstein's seamless monotube design provides superior tube strength while maximizing heat dissipation and shock life.

Ride Comfort and Performance Without Compromise

The piston head design allows independent tuning of the compression and rebound damping forces to provide optimum ride comfort and performance without compromise. It features fewer parts than most conventional designs. The product's simple, yet exceptionally functional digressive design contributes to the extreme durability and long life of Bilstein Shock Absorbers.

Better Built

Bilstein's shock bodies are precision formed through a unique seamless extrusion process. This provides superior strength along with high finish tolerances. The shock body is then treated with a special paint finish durable enough to withstand grueling 240-hour salt spray tests. The finished body is mated with a solid, induction-hardened steel chrome plated and polished shaft, machined valving components and highest quality seals.

LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY

Bilstein warrants to the original retail purchaser that, for the life of each Gas Pressure Shock, this product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship.

Allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.
