Bilstein pss coilovers "any addional parts needed"
1 Attachment(s)
Just bought a set of bilstein coilovers for my e46 sedan. I have around 100k miles. Any recommendations on any other parts I should replace on the suspension during install

Definitely replace all 4 shock mounts with quality brands since you doing a stiffer suspension. And I just did this same swap but depending on how low you go you'll have clearance issues with the rear sway bar hitting the control arm. I just decided to buy new links, cut them into sections and weld them to regain clearance. Other than that do the normal check around on the other suspension parts to see what else you need. Good luck post pictures!

if you dont mind, could you post a link where to get those shock mounts. I have a 2001 e46 sedan. Thanks bro.

Thats Front http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-330...cks/ES2581067/

This is what you need for the rear


You don't need the bump stop for the rear but at my shop I just recommend it to the customers anyway. Just a couple dollars extra. Let me know whatever else you need!
