1LE VS Bilstein B6/Koni or Pedders Struts & Shocks.

Hi, I am just in the planning stages for replacing my Struts/Shocks, My Mods are listed below, I am lowered 1 Inch. The 2 Main ones I am looking at are the 1LE and the Blistein, Bilstein is probably leading in my choices.


DO I need anything else? New mounts? I am not replacing because mine are worn or anything but like most of you I am always looking for a little more/ Better. Thanks

Before I went with Viking coilovers, I test drove a 1LE with the Bilsteins. Back to back with my 1LE, I liked the ride quality of the Bilsteins and the feel. I went with Vikings as I do more road course events and felt the adjustability was what I wanted. You can't go wrong depending on the intended usage of course.

I just don't want to go the coil over route at this time, I am thinking the Bilsteins are the way to go. I have them on a BMW my Ram truck and on a 3RD Gen 1LE they have always been a good shock in my mind.

I really like the Bilsteins on mine.

You have the right part number for the Z28 shock mounts, but I couldn't tell any difference when I installed them. I think there was a cut out in the top of it that was different but I couldn't tell that it was any more firm than my originals. Maybe the FE6 are more firm. Since the lefts for both FE6 and FE5/FEA are discontinued, I don't think it will be worth the effort to track them down and install.

Those are correct part numbers. They’re stiffer than 1LE and SS.

Is there a issue with B6 and lowered cars? I have read mixed reviews on this.

I'm running Bilstein B6 on mine with it lowered. I don't have any issues with it. Of course I haven't compared anything else, but it's what Justice Pete recommended knowing it was lowered.
