Bump.

If you guys have a couple of hours and want to learn then I suggest watching a few of these videos.

If this man makes a suspension for your car (most things that came with Bilsteins), skip past all the other bullshit and just buy from him. He's kinda magic.

I didn't see this thread so maybe this will help me get some answers.

Looking at getting some new shocks and springs as mine are shot. I've been look at bilstein but am worried that they might not fit. They're supposed to fit 04-11 according to the three websites i've found, but i'm just worred that they won't because of the changes that the car went through after 08.

The two part numbers are 24-110051 for front and 24-110044 for the rear. Any help?

blckninja, I have actually heard quite the opposite that bilsteins do not properly fit on the 04-08. Anyone actually tried yet?

Hopefully someone knows. Everywhere I've found them they are listed as the following:
Fits on:
? 2004-07 Mazda Rx-8 1.3L R2;;? 2008-09 Mazda Rx-8 Touring 1.3L R2;;? 2008-11 Mazda Rx-8 Grand Touring 1.3L R2, Sport 1.3L R2;;? 2009-11 Mazda Rx-8 R3 1.3L R2
I'll try contacting someone at bilstein I suppose.

Anyone know if the 40th AE bilsteins would work with Tein S, or do you need new shocks if you add lowering springs?
