Questions:
What kind of shocks and rear shock mounts do you have, and how old are they?
How much leaking do you get?
Are you sure it's the mount & not the trunk seal? (the dealer insisted that was the cause lol)

I had everything removed, cleaned & sanded from the underside to be sure it was smooth, there was a tiny bit of surface corrosion, nothing that would interfere. Then sprayed some primer & put some black gummy stuff as an added sealant along with the new paper gaskets.
It was good for awhile but the passenger side is leaking again.
At this point, I just sprayed some Anti-Rust stuff on it and give it a wipe & spray it again when required.

Next time I remove any of those parts I will put a new OEM mount, but at this point as long as my battery stays clean & dry it will have to do.
With the luck I have had my new rear M3 Bilsteins are probably leaking too !
The rear suspension issues NEVER end.
