Default Nice solution for Bilstein HD sway bracket

I've always thought Bilstein dropped the ball with the design of the rear HD/B6/B8 coilovers. The fact you have to completely remove the coilover assembly from the car to adjust the ride height/corner weight is a terrible design. Furthermore, if the bracket loosens and turns it can cause major damage.

Tarett has a great drop link bracket that has a pinch bolt which keeps it from rotating. There is just enough room to get these on the HD's, along with a thin second lock collar. I say thin as I bought a set from Ebay which ended up being 11mm thick. This didn't leave a lot of room for adjustment, so I turned these down to 7mm thick (about the same as the supplied Bilstein collars).

I'm running Eibach springs, and with the car at M030 ROW height (127mm in the rear), theres about 7mm of adjustment before the collars hit the Tarett brackets. Plenty of room for corner weight tweaks. You wouldnt want to run this setup with longer springs or a lower ride height, but it works well for my combination. I would think this would also work well with ROW M030 or M033 springs.
