    When the time came I replaced with OEM Bilstiens...unfortunately there aren't any better options available as far as I know.

    I'm really liking my QA1's in the rear... wish there was a more affordable option from them for the front... Front Bilsteins are noticeably stiffer than the factory rear ones.

    There’s a lot less weight back there for them to handle so that makes sense.

    Don't Bilsteins have a "limited lifetime warranty?"

    LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
    BILSTEIN warrants to the original retail purchaser that, for the life of each gas pressure shock, this product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship. Proof of purchase is required to process warranty.
