    More Information for ACDELCO 505548

    Okay. I keep reading that the Bilsteins for the GXP are no longer made. Yet, I've been under my car. The struts on it have a sticker that says "Bilstein," and I know, from both the handling and their appearance, they're not 12 years old. And I keep seeing these struts advertised.

    Is this the Bilstein, or just an ACDelco Professional part spray-painted yellow? Are the Bilsteins still made? If not, what's on my car?

    Those are Bilsteins for sure, do a search for that part on Amazon and read the reviews to give yourself peace of mind.

    Robot Check

    I looked at all 11 pages. The word "Bilstein" doesn't appear once. (I also did a "Bilstein" search and came up empty.) What am I missing?

    I just hit that check link from Amazon and the Bilstein was there.

    They are out there and are Bilsteins, so you can relax. They might be somewhat costly

    They came with the Bilstein sticker on the strut. The box said AC Delco made in Germany.
    Real deal here folks.

    How do you know they're Bilsteins? The word DOESN'T APPEAR.

    I think you are a bit stuck on the fact that the word Bilstein is not in any of the descriptions. Order them and if they are not what you want send them back and update this post If you are not ordering no sense in continuing to question because the link I sent you includes customers installed pictures as well clearly showing the blue Bilstein sticker. Good luck with your purchase.
