Whether your car is older with the traditional hydraulic shocks or newer with an electronically controlled suspension with shock absorbers, Bilstein offers replacement shocks to fit your car. The old bounce test worked on traditional shocks back in the ‘80s and earlier but modern suspension systems even when worn out will not bounce much when you push down on the fender. But if your car has lost that precise feel when cornering or doesn’t absorb road imperfections well anymore then it’s time to get your shock absorbers checked and replaced. The Bilstein shock absorbers are built to bolt right in to your factory mount locations and offer all the latest technologies available to fit your specific model.
    The Volkswagen T3 Vanagon was the third generation of the Volkswagen Transporter. Sold in the United States from 1980-1992, the Vanagon provided the interior space of a conversion van with the stability of a smaller station wagon. The Vanagon was offered in both rear wheel and four wheel drive, as well as with a passenger or camper interior with a pop up roof and integrated kitchen. In order to be such an agile multi-purpose vehicle, the Vanagon was equipped with heavy duty shocks to support all the weight it can carry. The Bilstein 19238821 shock absorbers are direct replacement front shocks for Volkswagen shock part number 251413031J used on the 1980-1991 Vanagon Vans and Campers both two and four wheel drive. Bilstein is a premier manufacturer of suspension components and has been manufacturing original equipment shocks and struts for Mercedes for more than 50 years.
