BILSTEIN releases Mercedes G-Wagen B6 Damper Upgrades
BILSTEIN, the hugely respected suspension manufacturer, has released a finely engineered damper upgrade for Mercedes’ perennial G-Wagen off-road range. As one of Mercedes’ longest-standing OEM suppliers, BILSTEIN has enviable experience of the off-roader’s chassis and capabilities, meaning that these dampers, which are also suitable for Turbo and AMG variants, offer exceptional handling and control – irrespective of the type of surface being driven on!
Although Mercedes endowed the G-Wagen with exceptional handling from the factory, BILSTEIN has used its enviable knowledge and experience to create the ultimate upgrade that maintains the character and comfort of the original vehicle, but with a sharper focus on handling precision. BILSTEIN’s B6 damper package helps to significantly enhance the dynamic abilities of the G-Wagen, working in perfect harmony with either the OEM springs or any quality aftermarket offerings. With the factory units on older vehicles now doubtless very tired and performing below par, the B6 units will help to create a ‘better than new’ feel in ride and handling terms.
The BILSTEIN B6 range is designed for those looking for more damping capability, with improved handling and reduced squat and dive, without ruining everyday ride comfort. Using the very latest in BILSTEIN gas pressure technology and precision twin-tube construction, each unit is hand finished in BILSTEIN’s German factory to surpass even the most stringent of OEM production standards.
Offering significantly greater service life than the standard part, the BILSTEIN B6 dampers also increase active safety through more efficient braking and better traction.
