RE: Bilstein secrets revealed (5K owners only)

I had 3, yes three sets of Bilsteins on my Jetta, every 80K I had to replace
a set, (they would get really hard), Bilstein was nice enough to replace
them for free, but it was getting "old", first, I would have to order a
complete set (4) and pay with a credit card, than remove the old shocks,
send them to Bilstien (with all the appropriate receipts), and than I would
get a refund. Pretty costly operation, labor and alignment on each
job.....(of course I did it myself) but it was still a lot of hassle.
Good luck with your new set and watch for them "to get hard" not mushy as
other shocks do..
