Suspension Question. Miata Guy here.

Alrighty Guys I'm about to Install a set of KW Variant 1's on my 2002 325I Sedan.
(I come from working on Miata suspensions)

This car is my Daily and ill be using it for the occasionally auto-x and i drive pretty spirited so any good info would be greatly appreciated.

1. I was wondering if i could use stock top hats with the Kw's as they didnt come with any.
2. If need be for new top hats what brands are best? and Where can I pick them up.
3. I searched in the DIY section and could not find a Thread with a full suspension install. Can anyone help me out with a link.

1. yes
2. might as put new ones on since everything is already apart. OEM is the way to unless you were looking for camber plates.
3. A lot of suspension information is cleverly hidden in the "Suspension Quick Reference Thread" stickied at the top of this sub-forum.
