Old Part Number: F4-B46-1261-H0

Looks like rear only for what ever reason.


Edit: I got a part number for the front ! BILSTEIN 34-050392

I just cant find a site selling it that's written in English?

What does the "IV" refer to? I hope they just got the numerals the wrong way round since the other details 'seem' accurate. If you get any confirmation on this please post up. I really don't have the fabrication skills to attempt something on this level myself, but I'd like to build some front struts/coilovers with narrower coilover springs to give me room for the camber adjustment I need up front.



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!

I haven't been able to find anything in north America. Only thing I found in English was from the UK. They wanted 300 each per strut. I would assume they would have to be special order for anything in the USA. I'm still considering the inserts because they are like $160 a side. Bummed because 6 months ago they were listing for just over $100.

I'm pretty sure they will fit inside our strut as is and if not I think they could be widened with a cylinder hone. The difference at most is like 2 tenths of a mm.

Got a voicemail from my Bilstein dealer, they got a hold of Bilstein corporate and they are discountinued, but they might have the parts to do a custom order (valving to our liking). Like I said it was a voicemail and I just got it so I have no idea what the price would be.

Are we positive that 34-050392 will fit in our sleeves?

I just got these and nothing is even close to fitting. They don't fit in the old cut housings and the top bolt is 14mm but just under the threaded section is 15mm I cant find misalignment bushings to fit this. This seems to have been a humungous waste of time. I'm going to return them and get BC's This piecemeal shit is not worth it. I just don't have the arsenal of tools to execute this properly.

Although I am still tempted : click

I have a Bilstein dealer in the US looking for 34-050392 right now.




i posted this on one of the other threads. way back when, i got a set made by bilstein for the vr4 out of europe, where they had stock. the company i worked for was a big bilstein distributor, and i knew a couple of the reps very well. one of them got me a set from europe. of course, the tops of the front struts have to be cut off, then a hole drilled in the bottom of the strut. a screw goes in there to hold the insert in the tube. i always thought they were too stiff, and i sold them to howard draper. i also had a set of tein ha coilovers. the tiens were awesome. made the car handle so well, i felt like i could chase porsches. but i had the stock 15" wagonwheels on the car, which i really liked, and the tiens needed a lot more tire that a 15" could deliver. i then got a set of koni's, and at full soft, i thought they were the best. car was a daily driver. bilstein keeps very good records, if someone can be convinced to do some digging, i am sure they can get the specs out of europe. i had a similar encounter with recaro. i wanted adapter brackets so i could bolt in a set of recaros. again, because of the company i worked for, they found what they thought might work, out of europe. but i would have to pay for it in advance, and there was no guarantee it was correct. i eventually found a guy in japan who sent me the recaro adapter brackets from a jdm vr4 which bolted right in. they even had the recaro part number on it. i then tried to organize a group buy, forced performance looked at them, and i would take them out, and let them repro them. i think the price was like 100 bucks each, but no one here was interested, so they are probably still in the car, 153/2000, wherever it now lives. killer seats. i got a set of jdm recaros off ebay that were in an evo. since they came from a rhd car, the left one was in pristine condition. the right one stunk badly with body odor, took me forever to get it clean. i guess rally drivers dont bathe. drew newton was the guy who bought my old car, he used to live in houston.

Awesome find. It might even be worth buying a few sets and hauling them back to the states in my luggage. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any international shipping, even to the UK, let alone to the US...

I couldn't get everything to translate. It wouldn't accept my zip code for shipping. I guess this was because international wasn't offered? I couldn't tell if they were inserts or full fit struts.

Definitely inserts. Similar to the 3000gt units but designed for GVR4/DSM.
