H&R rear end links, with Dinan shock mounts

I have the H&R springs for my X5m. Is it possible to install just the DINAN REAR shock mounts with the H&R rear end-links.

Would this combo work? The car tends to bounce a lot in the rear, so im wondering if doing this combo might solve anything?

Thank you

Will Dinan even sell the rear shock mounts separate from their suspension kit? I doubt it. I have the full Dinan suspension and although the truck isn't slammed like the H&R kit, it's looks and handles better than stock, and rides as close to stock as you can get from an aftermarket suspension. It is a little pricey but I don't regret it at all. A $100,000 M/// vehicle deserves a well engineered suspension. I personally wouldn't mix and match.

Defib,
When you change the entire suspension to Dinan suspension, are getting rid of the air suspension in the rear? Does EDC not work anymore?

No, Dinan's kit does not include rear springs. Only front springs, front and rear shock mounts and rear airbag adjustment links. The rear airbags stay in place. The EDC system is not effected by this kit at all.

How does the rear ride. I had the rear airbag adjustment links install on my M. It made the ride terrible. Wasn't that it was too stiff but the rebound was just awful. It was hard to ride in the back seat without throwing up.

PS. Love the "Defib". Are you an EP?

The rear does not bounce like the H&R kit. I rode in a friends with that setup and while it looked great, I couldn't tolerate the ride which is why I went with Dinan.
The key to Dinan's kit is the shock mounts. They maintain the same suspension travel as stock so the shocks operate in the same range of travel as stock. This allows the dampening properties of the shock remain unaffected. I wish I took a picture of the mounts before I installed them to show you, they are very high quality pieces.

I am not an EP but they are my biggest customers. I work in the device industry...
