This may be WTLW, but:

Bilstein Heavy Duty (HD) monotube struts & shocks are now available for the 2000-2004 'Leggies

Heavy Duty Front Left

Heavy Duty Front Right

Heavy Duty Rear

Tirerack has to special order them for me, but their pricing is good (5 bones for the set).

I'm so happy there's a drop-in replacement other than the GR-2's.

take pics when you get them. I have a feeling they're the same as the B4 bilstein's (at least in appearance), but they never posted an actual pic of it on their site.

I guess I was right - WTLY

Although checking the thread you provided shows that I'm getting a 25% better deal

Yeah, the paucity of info on BE/BH suspension options is pretty discouraging.

I was told by TR that it would take 2-3 weeks to get them. Hopefully I'll be able to find this thread by then to update with strut pr0n (j/k - the Legacy forum might as well have a character in "Zombie Strippers" as its official mascot . . .)
