hi cdodds2004... not really a problem with the shocks but more the rear shock tower being a weak area ( they say) especially if your running sport suspension, low profile tires or I would think even taking on some potholes. Google something like "E46 failed rear shock tower" ...click on Web, click on Images, you will drop that warm beer and be taken the "wife's" car down to the dealer to pick up a set of these reinforcement plates wicked fast!
good luck - have fun

Bavarian Auto just posted my DIY... see my original post above.
