Would be great if you could just to confirm whether this is true or not. I still need to get back to the guy at Bilstein about this but just don't have a standard shock to measure against.

So, i measured the distance on standard shocks ages ago, wrote it down, scrapped the shocks and now can't find the measurement lol.
I know the original ones do sit flush with the bottom of the hub so you could just measure the depth of the hub?


Yeah, I know my B4's aren't right because they don't sit flush and they should

But should they fit flush? Mine don't and the ride height looks fine.

yes they should fit flush at least as its a hollow cast hub and has a hole in the clamp, if not fully engaged they will not be supported properly.

Yeah mine is sitting at the correct height yet they don't sit all the way in the hub. Ive never had any issues because of that but i have thought of grinding off the locator (to just leave an 'l' to make sure its at the correct location) so i can drop it down to the bottom of the hub

The guy from bilstein wanted to compare measurements from the top of the hub carrier to the bottom of the spring pan as that is what determines ride height. Can anyone measure that? He said it wasn't necessarily important that it was all the way into the hub carrier.

I would say it specifically was quite important due to the design of the clamp.

I agree with you. I don't like it but I would like to get the other measurements anyway as that's why Bilstein asked for specifically. If it turns out that the hub carrier to spring pan value is 10mm too much then we know the tab is welded in the wrong place at least.
