Re: 10v 200tq Bilsteins
I have a set of sports, and they have the "big pistons".
However, the visible cylinder that looks like a piston, is actually an
upper tube, I believe. There is another piston within the visible
portion, that is part of the strut. One supposed benefit of this is
reduced unsprung weight, since it's "part of the car" instead of "part
of the suspension".
Got mine from RD Enterprises, http://www.shox.com.
