Croma 2.4 Bilstein B6 shocks

Recently fitted a set of bilstein b6 shocks to my croma. The driving experience is interesting to say the least. My croma with its remap egr delete dpf adjustment now goes quite quickly round bends as well as in a straight line. It's lost some of its soft floaty comfort feel but I think I can live with that.

Total cost for shocks roughly 540 ish from tdc.

Yes, I did the same thing - lowered the ride by a few cms which gives the car slightly better poise. Cornering much improved over the original (which needed replacing anyway).

Re: Croma 2.4 Bilstein B6 shocks

Hi! May I know what's the difference between Bilstein B6 and B8? I found those shocks available for Croma.

Hi,
The B8 is stiffer and shorter for use with lowered spring sets. B6 is more appropriate for the Croma.

Your info says you are in the USA. I did not know that the new Croma was imported to the USA. What model do you have?
