Used Bilsteins... now what to do.....

I picked up a set of Bilsteins (front and rear) for $150... yeah, I couldn't believe it either. They gave me the fronts with the entire strut housing and steering arms. Now I need advice on removing the collar holding in the struts. They're not the factory ones, something I haven't seen before. It should take nothing more than a spanner wrench, it has the notches for one. Or is there a special tool, cause no shop here has a spanner wrench. And, how do I know if I got HD's or Sports?

Thank You Everyone,

Ryan

When you receive new shock inserts fr Bilstein you get the spanner with them. To get the "right" tool ask someone that will let you borrow one, or order one from bilstein. Sorry I dont have one!

struts but not anymore. Anyway you could use a monkey wrench or even a punch, is usually not to tight. I have the tool.. I went to bilstein and pick it up.

i got a tool thrown in with a car i bought that may be the ticket - if it looks right you can borrow it - not that big shipping should not be much

Thanks for all you responses, probably remove them via large mouth vise grips. Can I tell if they're sports by the stamped #'s? Oh, I didn't tell you guys what else was included in the $150... A set of ST swaybars...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
