    i might still have my old ones but they are pretty trashed. Can you contact the seller? I dint have any luck at all with them Bilsteins but some people have.

    I have one new one, if it helps you may have it. 31mm hole, I think it was from a Bilstein.

    Did you check to make sure the new strut fits your existing strut mounts too?
