The Bilsteins we offer for the XP1000 and XPT are the same shocks that held up to the Ultra4 series in 2015, letting John Duckworth #1920 run hard and capture not only the Western title but the National title as well. He is chasing the title again this year in his 2016 XPT and the Bilsteins are on board.
Many may not be aware of Bilsteins history in off road racing. Quite simply Bilstein had won more races and championships before many other shock companies even existed. Bilstein simply revolutionized shock technology being the first to understand the benefits of using a high pressure nitrogen charge to control frothing of the oil, resulting in a fade free performance. The other thing that sets the Bilstein apart is it's patented valving technology. Their Patented "Digressive" piston design and valving works like no other which make for a very smooth operating shock through the entire stroke. The performance of a Bilstein can be directly compared to higher cost over complicated internal bypass shocks, but won't break the bank and are very easy to service and tune yourself.
Due to their many years of experience Bilstein understands the demands put on shocks and use only the highest quality components. Instead of buying a standard shock then having to completely go through it in an attempt to have it hold up and work properly, the Bilstein comes ready for battle. Optional features offered by other shock companies come standard on the Bilstein. Case hardened piston rod for all out strength, alloy bodies with bright zinc coating for ultimate protection in off road environments, high temperature seals for extended life, remote reservoir design with -8 high temperature hoses for durability and excellent heat dissipation along with dual rate coil over hardware and industry standard 5/8" spherical heim bearings. No cast parts in the Bilstein, all components are billet machined, and top it off they are MADE IN THE USA!!!
The 8125 series shock is also designed with the end user (customer) in mind. Due to their design they can be easily serviced, tuned and revalved using standard tools in your own garage. Of course, a nitrogen tank and filling equipment is needed for recharging the shock, but don't let that stop you. If you don't have a nitrogen tank, most performance shops do and can refill your shocks to the proper pressure.
We worked directly with Bilstein to set up the base valving for the XP1000 and XPT, and our package come equipped with Eibach springs for consistent performance. If you feel there is a need to change the dynamics simply give us a call to discuss your needs and we can send you what you need to make the change or you can send them to us and we will get it done.
Working directly with Bilstein we are able to extend a unbelievable limited time offer on our XP1000/XPT shock package. The package includes (4) 8125 2.5" bodies shocks, with cross over ring, spring separators, reservoir mounts and alignment bushings for OEM fitment. They are outfitted with Eibach springs and are ready to mount and go.
