Bilstein 7100 Rear Mounting Issue

I'm having trouble finding out how people have handled the upper mounts in the rear. Several have mentioned using these JKS bar pin eliminator mounts:



I can't see how the remote reservoir hose doesn't bind. It's forced into the body no matter which way I try to go with it.







What am I doing wrong here?

Re: Bilstein 7100 Rear Mounting Issue

I went for fixed reservoir 5150 in the rear and 7100 up front. The newer 5165 have a right angle on the pipe exit. You could put a suitable pressure rated right angle fitting on your 7100 shock tube. Or change the hoses to the banjo style that Bilstein use on the 5165, they may be available as separate parts if you can't get them made locally.

Thanks for the input/ideas!

I never did solve this issue, but here is an update. Apparently they don't fit without alternative mounting locations: https://www.naxja.org/forum/showpost...&postcount=760.
