"Average" or "Expected" lifespan from Bilsteins?

  1. I have the MM Bilsteins/H&R setup on my car for a little over 2 years now, and am noticing that the front seems to "float" a bit more than I remember it used to.

    The other day, I was going about 100 on a road that has a few gentle dips and such, and the front seemed to float/bounce more than usual. Also, the front end seems to bottom out going over speed bumps (even at slow speeds) more than it ever has in the past.

    I know the springs aren't bad and that they rarely fail, but I would have thought that I'd get more than 2 years from the Bilsteins, or am I way off base?

    Anyone had to warranty them before (assuming they're bad)?
  2. I've had my heavy-duty Bilsteins (all 6 of them) for about 2 years now and they're still stiff as the day I put them on.
  3. I wonder if I got a bad batch...hmm.
  4. What kind of warranty do the Bilsteins have?
    They are a very reputable company so I would contact them and see what they can do for you.
    That stuff certainly cost enough!
  5. Bils have a lifetime warranty.
  6. I have Racecraft (Bilsteins) on my 99 Saleen that are orginal and I have no problems with them.
  7. I've never had a problem with mine, but i have seen a couple that leak and go bad quicker than others. Call the company you bought them from (MM in this case I take it) and they should be able to take care of it for you.
