:confused: Does anybody know what the difference is between these shocks as i'm out to upgrade mine. Already have H&R springs on the rear and need the relevant shocks to cope with the weight and depth of how much its lowered by :confused:
I've read on here a few have gone for the B6's but wish they got the B4's, but they haven't said what the difference is between them !!

B2's are oil filled, plain boring dampers.
B4's are a step up, just plain standard gas dampers, little firmer than stock.
B6's are the sports version, monotube technology, brilliant.
B8's are B6's but shorter, but they don't do them for the T4.
All good stuff.

He aint wrong T:

He wears B6's on his works T4 Hack T:

Am i right in thinking the B4's are plain black and B6's are lovely Bilstein yellow?

Indeed yellow. The B6's make my high top a stable drive, not crashy at all but very controlled. No road surface has yet unsettled it. Very safe shocks. T:

I have got weitec springs on the back, will blistein B6 be ok with them or should I go for weitecs dampers? Also HD or normal B6. I have 2000 reg caravelle and have converted back to camper, don't really carry huge weights around although know my weitec springs are the heavy duty ones.
