Bilstein B6 shocks for E12 type 1 (1975)

Post by Yoozt » Mon Nov 05, 2018 10:03 am

I'm looking to lower our BMW 528 type 1 from 1975

Can I use the Bilstein B6 shocks or is there a difference between type 1 and 2?
Or ss the diameter of the front strut different?

On the site of Bilstein and other sites they only show from 1981 and up.

I looked for H+R lowering springs (40mm), but they show the same thing: 1981 and up.
Is the diameter different? or what is the reason?
