Bunta is cool... so far.
Bilstein doesn't make dampers for CB7's?

I'm rather confused by something I noticed on Bilstein's own website. I was looking for information on their HD series dampers in order to remove some concern that the "B6" dampers were or were not the same as the HD's and I have been unable to see dampers for our car listed. I checked under their listing for "MK4 coupe" with production year of like 89'-93' and they have "none listed".

I believe BilsteinUS site gave me the same result, none available for the CB7 (on that site I only had the option of choosing the 4-door sedan EX for our generation). Initially I was just trying to confirm that the "B6" dampers were the same as the "HD" dampers but now I'm wondering if they have stopped producing or offering anything for us.

I know the Ground Control/ Koni yellow combo is tried and true but from what I have read the HD's are a bit better quality( although they don't have a knob to fiddle with which isn't a big deal to me) which is why I'm trying to figure this out. Anyone have any input on this conundrum?

I'm not sure where you're seeing these HD struts but the only ones I see online from Bilstein are the B6s. You can just compare part numbers and that would eliminate weather or not they're the same.

If your talking about the B8's then you have to order them from over seas. They are not available in the US.

No I was actually just looking around for the Bilstein "HD's" which are listed on the drop spring/damper/coilover thread.
