rear shock mount destroyed
ive been hearing this bell type ringing for about 3 months now! and it was driving me crazyyy so i decided to rip out the lining of my trunk and i found that the top rubber mount on my KW V2 looks like it exploded and when i push the bumper down a little bit i can see the whole thing rise up and down!

can i buy a regular mount for the from auto zone to replace it or do i have to get one from KW?

Probably get the best one you can to handle your M3 engine transplant powers.

The rogue rsm are known to be the best. But they're pricy at $100

You've made no mention of whether or not you are running stock springs and shocks? Or how many miles you have on this suspension currently?

BTW, with no other changes, why in the world would you install a lightweight flywheel?

Make sure that your shocks are not seized and frozen, I had similar problem where the OEM rsm keeps pushed our of their housing and I solved this issue temporary using rouge rsm then I bought new shocks and the OEM rsm and every thing is fine.
There is a cheaper price rsm but I do not recall the brand they were $50 for pair while rouge was $115 for pair.

Gotcha. Not familiar with them so I thought it was the mounts you were referring to.
