KWV2s to be installed on M3 Cabrio...what else do I need? RSMs

Hey guys, Im installing KWV2s on my M3 Cabby this week or next week. What else am I going to need for the install? Im thinking i'll need RSMs but I also heard that im going to have to dremel the rear upper strut bracket...Is there a part I can buy without having to dremel and butcher the suspension?

Sponser PM me if you have the parts please....

That is the first time I hear about dremeling, but it may very well be different with the cabrio vs coupe.
Rear shock mounts is all you really need. Check your RTAB's while you are at it as well.
