I'm looking for a source for the black rubber & plastic dust seals that fit inside Bilstein strut tubes.The seals surround the insert, and rest on the inner sleave/bushing near the top of the strut tube, directly under the cap ring.I've spoken with Bilstein, and they claim that these are Porsche OEM parts. Bilstein does not offer the seals as replacement parts (although I do beleive they are still included with new struts). The Porsche Dealers I've talked to have no listing for this part. At least one well regarded mechanic has told me that if the old ones are not useable he just leaves them out.Any ideas for other sources?Does the delete option sound palusible?
