billie b6 are better than the sachs hd....but in my opinion not worth the extra money on a van

both work well with any drop down to about 75mm.....but 60mm max for optimum performance from them...40mm to work at there best..

cheers si

I havent tried the sachs, but I have the bilstein b6, with eibach springs and its a fantastic setup, handles extremely well and rides very well.

Sachs HD transformed the ride on my T4 Westy. No experience of the B6s, though I had B4s on my T3 Westy... I reckon the Sachs HDs are better than the B4s.

If it were my money I'd go Sachs + Powerflex
