02 325xi struts & shocks (please help)

I need to replace the struts & shocks on my 02 325xi but I'm a little confused about which parts to order. Besides the struts, what additional parts do I need or is everything included in the Bilstein strut assembly?
Thanks for the help!

1st off Welcome to Bimmerwerkz......



Are you planning to lower your car? If not, you will just need to replace the front strut inserts, check the condition of the upper strut tower bearing, check the bearing for play & dryness, if they are ok , you can just re-pack them with grease or Bavauto has them new for $40 part # 31 33 6 752 735

Here is diy link on replacing the front struts:
