Front Struts/190E: Are these rebuildable?

I finally found the mystery knocking in my front end that has been bugging me for a couple of months. I let it get worse and found out that it was a torn upper strut mount. While I'm in there, I might as well replace the struts as they look a little oily around the strut housing.

Why isnt just the strut 'shock cartridge' available? It seems unnecessary to have to buy the whole assembly. Is that cap on the stru housing threaded? I have a Bilstein tool to get off the porsche struts as
My Porsche 944's have 'rebuildable struts' (unlike the 911's) where you can just swap out the shock.

Any thoughts?
