    Take my advise and NEVER get Bilstein Shocks. I made a very big mistake listen to others and just got a full set of Bilstein for my Saab 9-5 Hot Aero Estate.

    I didnt get any response when I posted this subject on the 9000 page, so maby it was the wrong forum. Does anybody use Bilstein/HR combination. I am getting the impression that Koni is the most used/Popular damperupgrade!
