Bilstein B6 Front Strut Assembly for Mercedes Sprinter Vans (22-292247) are the ideal choice for improving the performance of your van. Bilstein B6 Front Strut Assembly for Mercedes Sprinter Vans (22-292247) feature a monotube design which provides consistent fade free performance. Bilstein B6 Strut utilize a unique, velocity sensitive, digressive piston which reacts to changing road conditions to provide consistent fade free performance. All B6 Strut are tuned for each specific application to assure optimal performance is achieved. Bilstein B6 Strut offer a significant improvement in ride quality, handling, and comfort.
Bilstein B6 Front Strut Assembly for Mercedes Sprinter Vans (22-292247) are the ideal gas-pressure Strut Assembly for those who refuse to compromise, either on performance or on comfort, even when the pressure is on. Our yellow BILSTEIN B6 Strut Assembly delivers a better quality of OE replacement when the demands are high.
The Bilstein 22-292247 strut, engineered for stability and control for trucks, motorhomes and daily drivers on rough roads. The B6 Heavy Duty 4600 monotube design eliminates aeration and keeps your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter tires glued to the road, and is the same shock used in NASCAR Super Trucks and SCORE and PRO-TRUCK competitions.
Developed for a variety of applications, including sports cars, sedans, coupes, trucks and SUVS, Bilstein performance Strut have been designed to provide improved handling and ride control without sacrificing comfort. Fade-free performance is achieved by using high gas pressure, monotube design with a large diameter shock body.
The Bilstein Principle
All Bilstein gas pressure struts/inserts and gas pressure shock absorbers operate on the same principle. They are manufactured with the rod pointing down into the strut tube, thereby utilizing the thicker, stouter body portion of the shock absorber to dissipate side loads. Consequently, due to the increased diameter and surface of the pressure tube, the Bilstein gas pressure strut/insert or shock is better suited to take increased side loads when compared with the conventional version.
Additional advantages, based on development strongly influenced by the motorsport industry, include greater stability, better road handling, and accurate steering. This combined with extremely high quality manufacturing and materials, means Bilsteins will last approximately four times as long as Original Equipment.
Battling Heat Build Up
Conventional shocks trap the heat within the shock body and prevent adequate dissipation, making them prone to heat build up, fade and eventual failure.
Bilstein’s patented design allows the excessive heat from the oil to transfer to the outer surface of the shock body and dissipate more efficiently. The dividing piston also permits the oil to expand as heat builds, preventing aeration (foaming) and viscosity loss. This allows the shock to maintain full damping characteristics as temperatures rise.
The tube of a Bilstein gas pressure shock or strut is fabricated using a special extrusion method. This process achieves an extremely tight peak-to-valley tolerance and maintains consistent wall thickness. Bilstein’s seamless monotube design provides superior tube strength while maximizing heat dissipation and shock life.
Ride Comfort and Performance Without Compromise
The piston head design allows independent tuning of the compression and rebound damping forces to provide optimum ride comfort and performance without compromise. It features fewer parts than most conventional designs. The product’s simple, yet exceptionally functional digressive design contributes to the extreme durability and long life of Bilstein Shock Absorbers.
Bilstein’s shock bodies are precision formed through a unique seamless extrusion process. This provides superior strength along with high finish tolerances. The shock body is then treated with a special paint finish durable enough to withstand grueling 240-hour salt spray tests. The finished body is mated with a solid, induction-hardened steel chrome plated and polished shaft, machined valving components and highest quality seals.
Bilstein products are backed by an aftermarket lifetime warranty.
