Question Bilstein Touring shocks


Just wanted to know if the NEW Bilstein tourning shocks that are available for the (gasp)BMWs are available for the 93 300E 3.2?

These shocks are supposed to be slightly stiffer than stock but not as stiff as the sports. I am going to put on a sportline front swaybar with them as well so that shoud be enough for my needs in a daily driver.

If the bilstein touring shocks are available, how about mixing them with stock springs? That's the plan unless someone can point out a flaw in this idea.

Thank you tri-star gurus,

Sounds like you mean the "new" econo-touring Bilsteins. THESE are a cheaper version of their standard shocks!
Stick with the quality of the HD or sport Bilsteins.
These are built so that they can compete$$$ with the CHEAPER Boge (Sachs) shocks.
