Bilstein Touring - A bit too soft....

The chassis has got about 30K shy of 200K
In the past, I have use OE fronts and in the rear, Sachs OEM. If I remember correctly, the Sachs was a direct OEM for the sport strut that was on it.

Fast forward this month. Replace all 4 corners with Bilstein HD. Have to get more seat time but the rears are quite the pogo stick

Bilstein touring are on the softer side IME. Akin to non-sport OE suspension. Bilstein sports are the way to go for OE+ sport suspension ride quality.

Where's the palmface Emoji. In my readings I thought the HD were -too harsh-

But yeah, it is noticeable enough, even from the git go.
