Default Stewart Development revalved Bilstein group buy feeler

How many of you would be interested in a group buy for re valved shocks?

Price will include 4 custom revalved bilstein shocks $700+shipping
Custom revalve your shocks $80/ shock
SM revalve $60/shock

Steward Development will shorten the shock bodies ~ 1" for $35/shock; more than that and it is around $70/shock.

If people want the SM revalve please get in the group buy. There won't be a further discount (it's already discounted), but it will count towards our group buy.

I don't have the scrap. I have other things to attend to, unless I build 8 DIYPNPs in the meantime. And if I were I'd use '99 Bilsteins cause I have to make sure to be cheap as hell; just human nature.

I'm "possibly" interested however there are conditions which may or may not keep me interested. Maybe next time, instead of talking **** to me, you agree and profess your lust for my heavenly physique...and I won't kick you in the ball from behind, faggette. Never **** with me on this forum unless you want to spend the rest of your life Schiavo'd out in the produce isle at the hospital.


What are my valving options? These could either go on a racecar or a daily.

They won't be valved to a standard spring rate. They will be custom valved to your setup (spring rates, car wieght, height, etc). If you are referring to the components used, then you will have to give him a call because it is over my head. He does have a penske shock option, which might be geared more towards the track duty setups. You would have to call him. I'm not sure if a discount would extend beyond the revalved bilstein shocks. He also mention that he does soemthing with the shocks that makes them r compatable. I didn't understand.

You are still "in"

Sorry, no

The price will include 4 custom revalved bilstein shocks. He has not given me a number of people needed to get this price, so I am doing a feeler.

So that would mean a price of $340 for four new bilstein HD shocks. I guess you coudl get a used set and have them revalved for a cheaper overall price. I'm assuming a revalved shock is "like new" on the inside???

Hard to jump in with no feedback or information about what the revalve would get us and what this guys skill and experience is. He may be phenominal and have it nailed as good or better than Fatcat. He may also be doing the "course" revalve that shaik says the factory Bilstein shop does.

How tailored would this be? What should we reasonably expect to acheive in improvement with his revalves? Are they race experienced only or familiar with the valving needs of the majority of us with dual purpose street/track cars?

Do me a favor and call him. I say this because my suspension knowledge is limited,a dn it would be good to get the information that everyone here wants. The revalve was matched to spring rate, ride height, etc. Look at his customer base.

Update. Their was originally a miscommunication between stewart and I about my setup which led to a price miscommunication. He thought I had a SM setup. When he found out i didn't he is giving me the sm setup price for a custom revalve. He will extend the SM revalve for custom revalve price. So the group buy price is $700 for 4 new shocks with custom revalve. It is normally $880 plus for this. I will get the number of required people needed.

So it's $600 if you revalve it to SM specs...

Would it be $600 if I want it revalved to SM spring rates for an autox/street car?
