Don't Bilstein struts from Bilstein have a lifetime warranty?

I understand that, my question is that aren't Bilsteins sold by Bilstein guaranteed for life?

"Warranty
GENERAL AFTERMARKET WARRANTY DETAILS
ThyssenKrupp Bilstein of America warrants its gas pressure shock absorbers against defects in workmanship and materials for as long as you, the original purchaser, own your car."

http://www.bilsteinus.com/products/s...vice/warranty/


It seems like the B12 would be the better purchase as it comes with the same Eibach springs paired to a Bilstein strut, but is guaranteed for life.

Subscribed. I've got the full kit on my spring mod hit list for my base 128(no sport); at under $1K seems like a great deal; I was concerned with the shocks quality but seeing the Bilstein logo puts me at ease.

Thanks for sharing!

You kind of want some rack, at least 0.5", IMO.

Personally, I set my car up for 0.75" rack
