Has anyone used the Bilstein HD kit?

A. Bilstein HD struts (with new upper strut lock nuts)
B. Upper strut bearings (optional depending on your car's mileage)
C. Upper and lower rubber spring pads (optional depending on your car's mileage)
D. Bilstein HD rear shocks (with new upper lock nuts and washers for lower bolt)
E. Shock mounts
F. Rear shock mount reinforcement plates
G. Rear shock gaskets
I haven't personally ridden on them, but I've heard that while they're good shocks, they can be rather firm. With the kind of roads you've got up there, you might want a softer shock. I think Koni FSDs would be the way to go. I only wish they came in M-fitment.

About the upper strut bearings - IF your shock towers are mushrooming, then you should get new strut bearings.
