BILSTEIN releases Porsche 997 damper replacements

BILSTEIN, the hugely respected suspension manufacturer, has released a finely engineered damper OEM replacement for Porsche’s perennial 911. This time, the lucky recipient is the 997 in its non-turbocharged guise.

Porsche endowed the 997 with exceptional handling from the factory and as its OEM technical partner, BILSTEIN has used its enviable knowledge of the marque to create the ultimate service replacement part that maintains the character and comfort of the original car, whilst integrating perfectly with the factory PASM system. BILSTEIN’s B4 damper package helps to significantly enhance the dynamic abilities of an older 997, working in perfect harmony with either the OEM springs or any quality aftermarket offerings to return the handling to ‘day one’ levels of ability and agility.

The BILSTEIN B4 range is designed for purists looking for OEM damping capability, with improved handling and reduced squat and dive, but without ruining everyday ride comfort. Using the very latest in BILSTEIN gas pressure technology and inverted monotube construction, each unit is hand-finished in BILSTEIN’s German factory to equal Porsche’s stringent OEM production standards.
