    Recently I ordered the FKS height-adjustable street line coil over system (SKU: SMBM9001) for my E46 BMW 323i. I installed the front part but am having trouble with the rear. After I installed the spring, shock, and shock mounts to the chassis, I had to bolt in the shock to the control arm. To do this, I raised the rear control arm with a jack until the bolt could slide in. I torqued the bolt and lowered the jack. Upon doing this, the shock ripped the rear shock mount apart. I had all of the washers and bolts on the shock, although I do realize that I torqued the shock bolt before I should have. Is that sufficient to destroy the shock mount? I reordered a shock mount and am retrying, currently on the same step as before. Are there any other precautions to take? Also, when comparing the stock shocks to the FKS shocks, I noticed that the originals are 2 inches taller. There is also a 3/4 inch gap between where the shock bolt screws into the control arm and shock itself. Is this normal?

    Just wanted to say your shipping is almost comically fast. Had a box waiting today on my porch and just ordered a few days ago (if that). The stealth grilles look awesome and I'm proud to have the license plate frame on my car. Stupid how excited I am to order my wheels from you guys (Alzor style 501 staggered in bronze). Just wanted to say y'all are awesome!
