I didn't have the proper tool when I installed my Bilsteins - but what I
used was perfect - a Park (brand) Bottom Bracket Tool for bicycles.  Same
concept - an arched hook with a claw on the end.  I'd say it was 99% ideal.
hopefully they still make it - as today's bottom brackets do not require the
use of this tool - like Audi's they require the use of a new specail

Check with your local quality bike shop or even REI.
