1. Are the Bilstein 1516/1517 shocks stiffer or softer than the stock Decarbon shocks?

2.Which shock is better...Bilstein or HAL?

Hi Sean,

1. I am not sure if the "softer" Bilstein's are stiffer than stock. The "firmer" Bilstein's (0929/1104) are firmer than stock.

2. For me it is hard to compare these shocks. I might put them in different shocks catagories. Bilsteins are well built nice performing shocks. The HAL's are more "race" shocks. Both are good. The shocks you want might depend on what you want to do with your car.

The 1516/1517 Bilsteins are stiffer than the stock Decarbon shocks but still give a nice ride. Better in all respects but not as stiff as sport Bilsteins made for other cars.
