No, you don't need new Spring Mounts unless urs is broken into pieces or don't want to run them. RSM is highly recommended. Springs only come with Springs and that is it.

When I called H&R they told me that the spring rates for their "Race springs" on my application(2000 328i sport package) were 330 lbs/in front and 360 lbs/in rear.
