Re: Bilstein Warranty Update

I can say that any gas shocks I have (Koni and Boge) have had a natural
to expand to full extension. They are even shipped with a strap that keeps them
compressed (to use a smaller box). Any hydraulic shocks will stay in the
you leave them in. So, the gas shocks tend to help push the car up as opposed
being neutral.
