Shock replacement after eibach drop

Anybody know if the bilstein shocks would still be covered under warranty after installing eibach Springs? I installed the eibach 20,000 km ago and now need a new shock absorber?

Re: Shock replacement after eibach drop

Is this from normal use or did one of them fail?
I don't have a definitve answer, other than I believe they carry a lifetime warranty. Bumping this for you as I am interested as well

Re: Shock replacement after eibach drop

After doing a little more checking, I found this:

"Bilstein 4600, 5100 and 5150 series offroad and heavy truck lifted and ride height adjustable shocks are designed to help your stock height truck, van or SUV reach its pinnacle in ride performance and handling."

It would appear, if you are running the 4600 series shocks, since they are for modified suspensions, I would think they would be covered. Of course as long as you have receipts...
