Handling improved BUT...
I recently purchased these Bilstein B6 HD's for my 2011 2.5l fusion with Steeds's I4 lowering springs and 22.5mm rear sway bar. Everything was installed correctly, triple checked, and all fasteners were tightened to spec. At high speeds, the car feels like it's floating on a cloud. The stance looks great, sits perfectly, and the turns/corners are smooth quiet and flat. Large bumps are definitely more noticeable, smaller bumps feel well cushioned. However, hitting bumps and cracks at slow speeds <= 20mph, all 4 corners clunk. Very annoying. Had I known that these Bilstein's offered through Steeda were the B6 HD line, I would've gone elsewhere for a set of B8's (true performance oriented struts/shocks). Not satisfied with the results.
