Rear Damper / Shock Absorber with Fittings
  • Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow (chassis 1001 onwards)
  • Bentley T series (chassis 1001 onwards

The Prestige Parts version of the much loved Bilstein dampers are designed to follow the damping rate exactly and as with all Prestige Parts they come with a three year warranty.

This part number supercedes: RH3373 | RH3374

  • Fitting instructions are included below.

  • When creating the range of Prestige Parts shock absorbers we commissioned two independent companies to advise on the ideal specification for each shock absorber and the standard four-door rear shock absorber.

    The Bilstein components are well regarded in the industry, having been used in popular handling packages and also as a direct replacement for the Sachs-Boge shock absorbers supplied by Bentley.

    If there is a criticism of the Bilstein units, it is that they can be slightly harsh at low speeds, which is partly a function of being gas-charged as opposed to oil-filled. 

    The manufacturer was provided the brief to mimic the damping curve of the Bilstein units above a particular shaft speed, but allowing the shock absorber to begin operating as slightly lower forces that that exhibited by the Bilstein. A second company was employed as technical advisory to audit the work of the manufacturer, ensuring that the end product met the agreed specifications. Samples were fitted to test vehicles to ensure that product specification transferred to comfort and handling on the road.

    When it came to the short stroke front shock absorber and the rear shock absorber for convertible Corniche models, the brief was simpler, and was to mimic the damping curve of the original Sachs-Boge units. Our engineers felt that altering the specification of shock absorbers with a shorter stroke would tax the unit beyond it's ideal damping range. In addition a third company was commissioned to produce the rubber gaiters, damper stems and bushes.
