I am planning on replacing my front struts.I have only seen two choices during my search.The Bilstein 22045768 that I know that brand has a good reputation and the cheaper priced kyb 365070.What is the preferred choice of tdiclub members?Are there other brands and part numbers? I just want a good ride and am not looking for a performance type strut. I have not taken it apart yet.Is there a strut mount that should also be replaced or any thing else while I have it apart? What about new springs? Any comments I would appreciate. On a side note I am going to change the rear control arm bushings I think they are called part number 3a0501541. The rear shocks don't look bad from appearance wise but I might need to change those also. If I do the rear is there mounts or other things I should replace in the rear?
