About Bilstein

Shock absorbers. What do they do? The shock absorbers reduce and slow down the vibrations from the springs. LMPerformance chose BILSTEIN Sport Shocks for its customers because when you buy BILSTEIN Shocks, you know the brand is a recognized name in the field of suspension design.

The mono-tube gas pressure technology was developed by BILSTEIN Sport Shocks and remains the standard in automotive construction. Buy BILSTEIN Shocks for technology that involves the keeping of the oil in the absorber under pressure, preventing it from foaming when temperatures and loads are increasing. The BILSTEIN technology gives the vehicle a high level of traction and more precise handling.

The BILSTEIN company produces mono-tube gas pressure shock absorbers and twin-tube shock absorbers. The BILSTEIN mono-tube gas pressure shock is first in motorsports and series-production sports car because It provides a large effective surface on the working piston. This results in increased damping power, better handling and improved improves the dissipation of thermal engergy outward senabling a high level of performance. The majority of vehicles, however use the twin-tube shock absorber.

The foundation for the impressive BILSTEIN company dates back as far as 1873 with a multiplicity of technical innovations that culminated in their entry into the automotive industry in 1928 with the production of the first chrome-plated bumper for mass-produced cars, then on to car jacks and finally in 1954 they took on the challenge of eliminating the vibrations caused by the conventional telescopic shock absorbers available at the time. They also wanted to concurrently produce a lighter damper that was capable of being fitted into any position and this would be no small undertaking. Finally in 1957 the effort and expense of this endeavor resulted in the production of the very first mono-tube gas pressure shock absorber for the Mercedes-Benz. The contribution to driving safety cannot be underestimated nor is the impact on the shock absorber industry where this technology is currently incorporated into all types of telescopic shock absorbers. The BILSTEIN name is synonymous with innovation and quality of product and this can be seen in the fact that all of the AM Mercedes in the DTM and more than half of all teams in the twenty-four hour race on the NURBURGRING house BILSTEIN accessories. The company doesn’t stop with technological excellence but wants to assure their products perform well on the road and on the track and in order to do that they implement an uncompromising testing program on both the NURBURGRING and the company’s test center in PAPENBURG. This is where their products are put to the true test by their own drivers who test the products on a multiplicity of driving situations and determine how balanced the driving characteristics of various vehicles are. The care taken in providing a product they can be proud of is the hallmark of the BILSTEIN Sport Shocks tradition for innovation and incomparable quality. When you are buying front and rear shocks for your Camaro or Firebird you can see from the above that you are getting a product that is superlative in every way.

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your Saab

With a lowered suspension you get better aerodynamics for your Saab because less air goes beneath the vehicle, creating a better outcome for wind drag on a car. In general, having the vehicle this way can increase the grip of the tires on the roadway and improve handling; however, not necessarily, lowering can in sometimes result in handling issues and that is why it needs to be done correctly. For the optimum compromise between handling and looks, choose a kit that includes matched springs and shocks from the preeminent manufacturers like EIBACH. The EIBACH PRO-KIT for your Saab is the ideal for street use because it dramatically improves both a vehicle's performance and look. With the PRO-KIT you will perfectly lower the center of gravity and as a consequence reduce squat when you accelerate and will prevent body roll in corners and excessive nose-diving when braking and if you combine it with Plus-1 or Plus-2 wheels and tires, the EIBACH PRO-KIT is the primo recipe for style and performance.

Nitrous adds chemical oxygen which allows you to burn more fuel; consequently, making more power and vaporizing nitrous oxide provides a significant cooling effect on the intake air. When you reduce the intake air temperature thus increasing the air's density you are allowing even more oxygen inside the cylinder. If you are thinking of nitrous oxide think ZEX™ the designer and manufacturer of truly superior parts for the ideal nitrous solution for innovative designs and custom-fit systems and their with Active Fuel Control, their patented technological development to adjust fuel enrichment with changes in the bottle pressure for safer, more efficient nitrous injection for increased horsepower gains without sacrificing engine safety.

Performance clutches typically involve heavier springs and different disc materials resulting in more clamping force. thus more torque and more likelihood of grabbing and are particularly useful when the power levels affecting the clutch system exceed the levels at which the stock clutch disc can operate - such as in race vehicles. LMPerformance proudly offers your SPEC the preeminent manufacturer of street high performance and racing clutches and flywheels for your Saab. The SPEC Clutch Kits range from street kit Stage 1, 2, 2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and now the SPEC Super Twin with TQ ratings of over 1500 FT TQ and every SPEC Clutch Kit and Flywheel has been SFI Approved.
