Dang that's good. I'm gonna wet myself.
I have an NA. I have NB hats, do I get NB HDsports? Or should I do NA HD and drill the hats (diy FMC hats)?
Forgot I was on mt.net. Give me a second to get my flamesuit on before replying to my dumb questions. Thanks in advance.
Sounds like something slightly off-topic that should be discussed in a PM, fwiw.

What material is the piston made from? Rubber? Metal? I can't tell by looking at the photos.

Ok slight misunderstanding. Bilstein revalves for $65. Bernie charges $100 for the basic revalve-custom parts are probably more. Bernie charges $35 more than Bilstein and you get a heck of a lot better shock-plus the added benefit of bragging that your suspension guy does work for the best drivers in nascar.

I've said what I've needed to say... I just really hate the myth "bump damping is for unsprung weight". The reasons for softer bump then rebound damping have nothing to do with unsprung weight. Readers can decide for themselves based on our conversation.
Hmmm...
