Update 10/28/12:
Installed the rear shocks myself. As you can see, the shocks look identical in physical design. I replaced both lower and upper rear shock mounts. Having a ton of prior E36/E46 suspension work experience, I thought this shock replacement was straight forward. I literally had more issues futzing with the interior trunk panels.

The rear has tightened up and tucking in corners like they used to. Mid-corner bumps are not as scurry anymore. I expect things to be alot better once I replace the worn out runflat bridgestone EL42 (terrible tires) next spring.

I will take the car into a shop to get the front struts replaced this week as I am too old now to be futzing with a spring compressor.
