Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Fronts will require a spring compressor. Rears take less than 10 min each. You will reused the factory bumpstops and boots.

What made you choose this particular product?
$250 nzd steal for full a full set.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
No.. Bilsteins are basically only decent standard shock available for evos.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Can install yourself. Rear is direct bolt on for 4-9. Evo 4/5/6 front requires a 2mm shim, spacer or washer at the lower shock mounting to use evo 7/8/9 suspension.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Bilsteins are night and day difference in daily driving quality specially paired with decent spring for evos over the standard spine jarring KYB shocks.
Any additional comments?
It just so happened that evo 4 KYB oem replacement shocks aren't exactly able to be sourced easily outside Japan. Not wanting coilovers due to daily driven and the certification process here in NZ, the Bilsteins made sense aside from anything since you can get them quite easily. Beware too, the ride height is increased 1-2mm on older evos if you reuse your oem springs.

I think bilstein make the best shock absorbers.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
Yes
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Just like replacing a OE shock absorbers.. Take your time dont put yourself on a deadline.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Excellent.. Ive had people fall to sleep on the motorway in the back... But handles like a sports car on the B roads a truely amazing shock absorbers coupled with eibach springs and its the best non coilover set up in my book.
