Glad I could be of help!
BTW, I've understood your car is lowered? In that case you might want to consider modifying the new bearings prior to fitting.
This is how new bearings looks like:
The one on the left is upside down, and the light-coloured plastic is the spring seat. There's a small tag protruding upwards approximately at 3 o'clock. That's the stop against which the end of the spring coil locates.
When I fitted my H&R coilover kit, the fitting instructions specifically instructed to grind down that protruding bit to avoid breakage of parts. With a shorter lowering spring, there's the risk of the penultimate upper coil hitting the protrusion on compression, which could wreck the bearing!
Here's the protruding bit ground off:
This way, if the spring uper coils should "bottom", only the two coils become in contact. And there's no pinpoint concentration of force directly on the protruding bit.
I'm sure H&R recommend this modification for a good reason, and I must say I've had no problems since fitting the lowering two years ago.
Perhaps this is not what wrecked your original bearings as they do go with age even on standard cars. But it shouldn't hurt to do this mod to the new bearings.
