ST Suspension 47170 Shock Kit 01-05 Volkswagen Passat (3BG-B5.5) Sedan / Wagon
Using stock shocks with lowering springs can result in a harsh ride, bottoming out and premature shock wear. ST Suspension Sport Shocks are specifically designed for use with lowering springs and feature advanced valve tuning to reduce shock travel for optimal performance while still maintaining exceptional ride comfort.
When upgrading your vehicle with lowering sport springs, you need to take a look at your shock absorbers along with many of the related suspension and steering components to make sure you are getting the most out of your suspension. The majority of the lowering sport springs feature not only the lowered stance, but also an increased spring rate. This higher rate creates a different demand on your shock absorbers, creating the need to replace your factory shocks and struts with new units designed to properly control these forces and keep your wheels where they need to be on the ground. Remember, if you are 3 wheeling around corners, you just lost 25 percent of your traction. ST Sport Shocks are designed exclusively for lowered vehicles featuring the advanced valve tuning targeted at controlling the higher spring rates associated with performance lowering spring. The shortened or reduced rebound travel optimizes the piston stroke of the shock absorber guaranteeing a balanced chassis under any circumstances. With the ST Sport Shocks on board, you can carve the canyons in comfort, style and safety.
