Bilstein Rear Shock [Syncro]
These Bilstein twin-tube gas-charged shocks are a direct replacement for the no longer available OEM BOGE/Sachs shock absorbers. They feature dampening much closer to the shocks that came on all Syncro models originally, but are a gas pressure design like the Old Man Emu variety. What this translates to is ride similar ride to the OEM shock with much higher heat capacity (off-road driving) like the Old Man Emu shocks. They are a great option for anyone looking for a super quality, German-made replacement shock absorber that can handle more heat like the Old Man Emu, but is not nearly as stiff. We highly recommend them for lighter-weight Vanagon Syncro models, like hard-top and single and double cab trucks.
