I hope I don't start coming off too anti Blau, because they do provide some
good things, but I do question there upselling tactics, especially with
consideration to there vested interest in such affairs.

To me (my disclaimer) replacing strut bearings makes sense, especially if
there's unknown mileage or there's clunking.  The only reason I can think of
to change the mount is so as to replace the rubber bushing at the top
especially at the price (I think $100 per side?).  Somebody can correct me
on this, but wonder what the amount of stress this recieves esp. with
relation to the amount of deflection.  I think bump stops aren't really
utilized all that much (ie when was the last time you bottomed out) so...
and the boots maybe replace if torn.

Just my opinion.

Just let me know the details when you need them and I will send you the
money and addresses.  thanks-Josh

Any chance we could get the extras too in the buy like the strut mounts,
strut bearings stops and boots?  I know Blau recomends changing them when
you replace the shocks.  Or is this asking too much?
