Polaris Slingshot Coilover Suspension by Bilstein
SlingMods is proud to offer a Bilstein One-Way adjustable shock set up for the Polaris Slingshot. We couldn't believe the difference in handling once the suspension was installed on our shop Slingshot. The Bilstein setup takes your Slingshot to an entirely new level of handling allowing you to tear up the canyons like never before. These shocks allow you to adjust the height of the vehicle, and are setup to lower your Slingshot 3/4" from stock height, for better handling and ride comfort.

Features of the Polaris Slinsghot Bilstein Single Adjustable Suspension Package:

  • Every shock is built and dyno tested in the U.S.A. to ensure quality and performance
  • Adjustable Ride Height (threaded collar for spring preload)
  • 14mm hard chrome shock shaft for durability
  • Custom valving and spring rate available if requested
  • Upper and Lower spherical bearing mounts for reduced friction and misalignment
  • Aircraft quality aluminum components held to the highest tolerances
  • Owner rebuild-able and service-able

What is the Max height adjustment over stock and are they rebuild-able?
How would you compare to the JRI.
Thanks
( Jeff, 07/23/2015 7:37 am )

Hello Jeff, the shocks are shipped at 3/4" lower than the stock ride height and are not intended to exceed OE ride height. We can create a system for you that exceeds OE height, but you'd need to provide us with the proper spring rate to accomodate for the lift desired. These shocks are designed to be easily rebuilt and serviced. Bilstein is the original monotube shock
company, and the components are held to the highest tolerances. As for
performance, these shocks perform as good, if not better than the
competition. Our sealing technology comes from our O.E. product line, which
insures the best seals in the industry. Unlike the competition, you won't find oil residue on the shocks or rings
of oil on the shafts.

You state it will be 1" below stock height. How much HIGHER than stock can it be lifted to? And how easily can it be raised or lowered? ( Rick Gilberg, 07/21/2015 1:16 pm )
Hello Rick, the suspension comes tuned at 3/4" lower than stock. You can raise the Bilstein shocks back to factory height by using a "spanner" wrench. Please make sure the Slingshot is lifted in the air to remove load from the spring before adjusting the shock height. ( SlingMods )
Do they come with installation instructions & would we need a new alignment after we install them? ( Christina Conter-Wallace, 07/21/2015 10:10 am )
Hello Christina, Yes.. we do recommend that you get an alignment after you alter the suspension on the Slingshot. Suspension is an integral part of operating the vehicle. We recommend that this product is installed at your local Slingshot dealer. It's about a 45 min installation. ( SlingMods )
Will these shocks deliver a smoother, more comfortable, better overall ride, than the OEM shocks? ( Rodney Dawson , 07/19/2015 2:40 pm )
Hello Rodney, the Bilstein shocks are UNBELIEVABLY better than stock. You'll find yourself hitting corners faster than ever before. The ride is very comfortable and they get rid of that loud slamming noise you hear when going over speed bumps with the stock shocks. Hands down our favorite mod to date. ( SlingMods )
These being adjustable... I would have the ability to "raise" my SS up if I wanted to? Thinking more ground clearance... 3/4" raise. thanks ( Lewis, 07/18/2015 6:59 am )
Hey Lewis - This is correct.  They come from the factory at about 1" lower than stock, but you will be able to raise them since height is adjustable.  Great question!

Great product
Installed the shocks, one minor issue. I had to do some minor machining on rear strut , nothing that a small grinder can't fix. Polaris thinks so much of the shocks that they offer them for 3 times for Slingmosds price. Now the SS handles the way it should.

Awesome Shocks
These shocks make the feel of the Slingshot that much better in the mountains. Great product that I highly recommend. Also, working with Slingmods.com was great as always. Only place I will shop for my Slingshot needs.

H-O-L-Y COW!
Why did I wait so long?! Should be one of the first purchases for your SS! No more chipping a tooth or puncturing your spleen when you hit a bump! I have noticed a significant difference with how the SS handles cross winds too. Much more stable. I tried to mount the rear shock upside down however the mounting bracket on my SS must be a bit bigger as it was hitting the bearing mount on the shock preventing the holes from lining up and the bolt from going all the way through the upper mounting bracket. Not a big deal. Now for the summer and a real road test!

So brilliant. So utterly wonderful.
My slingshot is now a vehicle fit for the road. The skateboard stock suspension is in the trash were it belongs. My only complaint ? Why TF did I wait so long to put these on. I suffered through 5000 miles on the stock. These are a dream.
