Bilstein Sports vs. stock?

Bilsteins feel different because they highly over damp a suspension with
stock springs. Their marketing ploy, make them feel different so the
customer can sense it and think it must be better. Especially noticeable
when sitting on a thin wallet. Your suspension will be sluggish in returning
to SRH after a bump.
