BILSTEIN Introduces New B8 8112 Shocks

Available now, the B8 8112 (ZoneControl CR) shocks will be joined by the B8 8100 (Bypass) shock in coming weeks.

BILSTEIN has announced its new B8 8112 (ZoneControl CR) shocks for the 2005-’17 Toyota Tacoma. BILSTEIN’s damping performance is achieved through three compression zones and two rebound zones, all controlled by three fully-independent, position-sensitive internal pistons. Costly secondary bump stops, and finicky limit straps are no longer needed as the B8 8112 (ZoneControl CR) takes care of it all by controlling every inch of stroke in both directions, according to the company.

Transitioning from comfortable cruising on the pavement to conquering off-road terrain is possible due to BILSTEIN’s damping technology., the company says The external coilovers spring rate is vehicle-specific and preloaded to factory specifications. The threaded retainer still allows an additional two inches of ride height adjustment. The 60-millimeter remote reservoir provides increased oil capacity and enhances cooling.

Designed for each vehicle application, a frame-mounted, anodized aluminum reservoir mount is included.

Available now, the B8 8112 (ZoneControl CR) shocks will be joined by the B8 8100 (Bypass) shock in coming weeks.

Also position sensitive, the B8 8100 (Bypass) shocks incremental flow adjusters allow finite and incremental changes in damping force for precise compression and rebound control. The 60-millimeter remote reservoir, with machined aluminum chassis mount, uses a bottom port for the reservoir hose to provide increased bottom out control during the compression cycle. Direct fit for easy installation, B8 8100 (Bypass) shocks paired with the B8 8112 (ZoneControl CR) shocks up front will provide a complete bolt on performance handling package, according to Bilstein.
