Asked this on the mother list, no definite answers yet.

Installing new Bilstein Sport inserts/shocks to replace
worn stock struts/shocks.  I have the special Audi 'socket'
tool to do this having replaced several previous Type 44s with Boge TG but
Bilstein has a larger piston and therefore different large top nut with
special wrench to tighten.  Not changing springs, I'm happy with stock.
Also, can
I change upper strut bearings if I can compress the spring on the car?

Has anyone changed to Bilstein on the car w/o further disassembly?
I have spring compressors and air ready for the rear.
