Bilstein 7100 mounts

I currently have "yellow" Bilstein's. Need new shocks and considering 7100's without reservoir.

I think I need new lower mounts for front AND rear. And need new towers for front.

Do I need a new mounts for the UPPER REARS or can I attache the 7100's to where the current shocks attach???

You'll need disco towers, a set of four lower eyelet adapters and I think the short body 7100s don't require a lower rear mount.

I have been thinking of going Fox 2.0 or Bilstein 7100 non-res myself for the front. I believe you will need to convert from stud mounts to eyelet - like Tyler said you'll need either the Disco 2 towers or something like what RTE sales: http://www.rte-fab.com/products?page...category_id=16

Along with the bottom from RTE: http://www.rte-fab.com/products?page...category_id=16

Why are you thinking Bilstein over Fox and what length and valving are you going with?

Those RTE shock mounts are very cool.
