My Ride: 2004 325CiC
Just looked at my RSM's thru the peep-holes. It appears the passenger side shock-top is 3/8th to 1/2 inch closer to the frame. I'm guessing this is causing the clunking noise on that side, while I hit larger bumps. Probably a sign that the RSMs are slowly fading to its imminent death. I haven't looked under the car yet for other signs, but this is the general location of the sound I occasionally here. No signs of frame cracking or anything. This car I picked up 1 month ago is super clean (67K miles, 1 owner, BMW maintained, not even sure it ever saw rain), driven by a 60 year lady.

Any comparison data between the yellow Bilsteins and these ZSP shocks you got? I'm happy with the stock suspension. Impressive ride for sure.
