Bilstein Uprated Custom Rear Shocks

Special time again while they last.
I have a limited number of uprated custom Bilstein rear shocks up for grabs.
A great time to add rear Bilstein shocks if you already have the front done with Bilsteins or upgrade the standard or inferior ones to the best & strongest rear shock on the market.

These shocks have been custom made specifically by Bilstein Germany to my specs. They feature a 3mm wall thickness up from the standard Bilstein shocks which are only 2mm thick. The advantage of this is increased Rock & stone impact protection as the rear shocks are mounted in front of the axle & can be prone to damage.
They are also 25mm longer than the standard Bilstein, genuine VW & other rear shocks to give better articulation off road.
I'm almost giving these away at $475 for a pair, that's right 2 shocks delivered Australia wide for $475.
So grab yourself a bargain as these shocks retail at $390 each & the standard ones are selling on eBay for $500+.

    [MENTION=5701]Net4x4[/MENTION] how would they work with standard factory HD springs and an empty tray?

    [MENTION=3959]ScotRok[/MENTION] The Bilsteins have more compression & rebound dampening than the stock VW shocks so the handling will be better with then in & being a mono tube design with a larger piston & more oil than a twin tube shock they do not heat up as quick & cool down quicker making the Bilsteins less prone to shock fade.

    Second best upgrade I did was front and rear shocks....
    Best was the rhino bar that mark also helped me out with.
    Now to get my hands on some HR front springs [emoji16]

    Great reading as i have an isssue with a skittish rear end on corrogations without anything in the tub. Thinking about pulling the trigger on these, but are they likely to settle things down a little as i had had a couple of butt clenchers with the back end wanting to be the front end!

    Also, are thes a simple diy or does it require pnumatic tools? Hoping to just crawl under wirh a socket and open ender ot am i dreaming?

    [MENTION=7653]Cyclops[/MENTION], They are a simple thing to change, just need a spanner & a torque wrench.
    Unfortunately any ute will be skittish on the back end while cornering with no weight in the back, the billies will help with that a lot & eliminate nearly all of it but not completely. The HD leaves in the Rok are really good but lack the travel that lifted leaves have before they hit the load bearing leaf in the leaf pack which means you end up with quick rebounding & the genuine shocks & most aftermarket shocks just can't cope with that, they overheat quickly trying to keep up which in turn makes them less effective again.

    It's the thump from the rear when going over speed humps and gulleys, I would like to reduce.
    It's like the front and rear are out of sync. I feel I need to soften the damping when the spring goes into compression to allow the initial flex in the spring to do its job better, but keep the rebound under control so it doesn't set up a harmonic.
    I try and take speed bumps at a slight angle so one wheel goes up first which helps.
    I was going to wait and fit Koni's but if these will work just as well, I would get a pair.

    Heads up: the shock bolts are 18mm
    There's a gap between my 17 & 19mm sockets that I'm going to have to fill!
    The bolts are bloody tight too, expect to need an extension on your handle, or borrow a breaker bar.

    Yes that is something to watch for in socket and spanner sets as a lot don't have 18 mm
