Any update on the B8 trials?

It seems these guys are selling HD and SP.

Considering Swift SPEC-Rs with B8 SPs.

I ended up not going this route with the DSM. I couldn't get the funds together in time so I went with what I felt was the next best solution, Konis all around with ground controls. I am still interested in seeing what others think about the B8's as they would not be off the table for me in the future...

Well I was hoping some one would try the B8s. But I think I am going to go with the B6 HDs

If you were hoping someone would buy the B8's, then why would you buy the B6's? Why not buy the B8's yourself and report back you findings/experience?

^Not a bad idea but with my limited knowledge of suspensions, and only being able to compare it to the MR set up... I dont think it'd be a useful review.

I pulled the trigger on the B6s

they are an authorized dealer as well. i've used these guys and had great results. i had to warranty my fronts after catastrophic failure on one side. i was able to send both fronts back to them for warranty. instead of waiting a month for bilstein to authorize the warranty, i purchased two new fronts from them and when bilstein approved the warranty, they credited my account for one full strut and one prorated strut.

this beats having the car down for months waiting for warranty before new parts are shipped out

I just recently put on the B6 HD's with swift springs and so far I love them. The ride is nice and that combination has improved my handling. I would recommend the set up.

I too am in the market for a set of Bilstein shocks. I spoke with Racecomp Engineering and they told me to definitely go for the B6 HD's. This may have been influenced by the fact I just purchased the Racecomp Engineering/GT Worx lowering springs, but they indicated that this combination worked extremely well together.

BUMP! I would also like to know if anyone has tried the SP's. My KW's need to be rebuilt and thinking about moving to a shock spring set up instead. Car doesn't go to the track that much anymore, mostly commuting now with canyon and occasional track use.

So What ever happen with the B8s. I put lower springs and killed my struts rather quickly. I am about to purchase a set of B8s. I know I am not qualified to write a report but I will let you guys know how they feel in comparison to the stock Evo MR.
