RE: W123 Billstein B6
good info, thanks!
I have b4's al around on a w123 sedan with a tad uprated engine and is very happy with those.
how is the lenght on those b6s compared to the b4? identical but the 10-15% increased damping or anything else that is good to know?

have heard that some dampers are "shorter" to cope with lowered cars etc, and my cars is just a tad lower than stock.

(il see if i can find numbers of my b4s)

B8 Bilsteins are shorter than stock, B4 are like stock and B6 should be stiffer but std lenght.

RE: W123 Billstein B6
there the same as the b4's but i think they have the triple stage valving in them definitely better in corners than the b4 HD lose a bit on bumpy roads but i don't mind that some do some don't same loss of ride quality as going with cut sls replacement springs. now i just need a wagon front sway bar and to find out about making or adapting a heavier rear sway bar ect ect the road to a perfect car never ends

RE: W123 Billstein B6
ya i spent some time searching they were for the w123 sedan and would have worked however they went out of production sometime in the early to mid 2000's. they were originally listed for 230's and 280's for rally use. at least thats all i could pull up. i contacted Billstein and thats what they told me. also tried anyone that listed them in stock no luck.
