| hey folks,
so i'm real real close to ordering but i have a few more questions.
are the oem strut mounts really worth FIVE times as much as the aftermarket ones? i mean damn, that's another 230 bucks i didn't plan for.
2) i'm ordering:
KONI Adjustable Front / Rear Shocks/Struts BMW E46 sedan / coupe
SKU # : bmw-e46-shocks003
Front Shocks : E46 325xi / 330xi Sedan / Touring (8741-1481LSPORT)(8741-1481RSPORT)
Rear Shocks : E46 325xi / 330xi Sedan / Touring (8040-1343SPORT)
and Eibach Pro-Kit Springs for BMW E46 3-Series / M3
SKU # : bmw-e46-springs001
Vehicle Model : 325xi, 330xi sedan 6cyl. (2089.140)
i was told that the springs are good for the touring as well (eibach site doesn't show any springs for the touring). can i order oem spring pads and they should fit fine or do the eibachs come with their own spring pads.
3) do i need guide supports and new locking collar nuts?
4) do koni's make non adjustables that people were referring to? none of the sites, (tire rack, modbargains) had them.
i guess that's it. my car is back from the shop next week and i want to install the new suspension asap. driving anymore on the busted rear strut can't be good for the car.
also, i plan on getting 17's or 18's for this eventually. shouldn't have any problems right? i'll probably get the wheels and get it aligned all together.
