Bilstein B6

I have a set of B6 struts that are about 2 seasons old. When I went to H&R lowering springs, I found out that I should have B8 shocks due to the adjusted height. Is there any interest here for a good set of B6s ? I figure about $450 USD shippedfor the set.

would these be the same fit for a 97 base? Although i'm guessing shipping across the border would not make much sense.

Im not sure about the fitment. You might do a bit of research. My car is a 2004 Boxster S. Shipping shouldn’t be too bad. I can check if you find that they’re a good fit.

$450 shipped? Seems reasonable.

my understanding is that they are the same as oem - one is used for standard suspension and the other for m030.

if you have the part numbers i can cross reference. Also, for clarity, when you say they are 2 seasons old have you been running them for 2 years with the H&R lowering springs? if so about how many miles did you put on them lowered? Thanks

The B8 is shorter. Apparently the stock strut is equivalent to a B4 and the B6 is a performance upgrade. The B8 is the same as the B6 but shorter to give the proper pre-loads when using lowering springs. In my case, with H&R lowering springs, the B6 shocks will not be loaded enough to give me the optimum performance.
