Anyone have bilstein shocks? I'm thinking that they can be a good solution for bumpy roads. Are these shocks too stiff or just fairly stiff? Need solid shocks that can still provide a comfy ride.

Never used bilstein, But have used Monroe for years and for daily/weekend drivers have been happy with them. Alos have installed on ASC Coupe and ASC Mustang and the owners both liked the way they felt and rode.

Actually, Monroe is my second option. How's the performance of this shock on bumpy roads?

Most people likes the bilsteins for handling. Koni being better and more expensive. I have bilsteins on the back of my LX very. They were cheap and used. It does not ride as smooth as I would like but the old ones were shot. I believe there is more than 1 grade of bilsteins.

I ended up getting the bilstein because of the nice deal I got at 4wheelonline. These shocks are a bit stiff, though there's an improvement in handling.

I'd recommend the Maximum Motorsports Bilstein Sport Kit and H&R Sport Springs. I have that setup along with a full set of Race Bilsteins with coilovers.

They are custom valved for MM and produces a great ride. I installed them on my 88 ASC with both H&R sport springs and MM coilover springs.

In short...do it all together for best results!
