I thought these are mounted inside of the trunk between the body and the rear strut mount nuts? I believe it's goes RSM, gasket, car body, reinforcement plates, and nuts. At least that's how I did mine.

You are correct. Thanks for clearing that up. My post was a little confusing

Hey, I haven't got around to drawing up the front plates yet. Sorry. I still have plenty of rear shock mount plates left.

Any progress on the subframe reinforcement plates? Plan in doing the front shock mount plates too?

I loved the shock mount plates, real top notch quality. If you end up producing them, let me know, no questions asked, im in.

Hi,
I thought e46's only had issues with the subframe cracking, had no idea about the shock mounts. What happens there, does it crack? and do they require welding?
The price is unbelievable..I am in process of buying the reinforcement kit for the subframe, if you get a chance to get those done and for sale, ill be your first customer
Thanks in advance

These plates are made from 3/16 HRS grade 80 steel,laser cut at dad's machine shop. I can make these thicker if need be.

These come unpainted so you can paint to match your car or to weld in. I have plenty sets available.



Price $20 shipped
PM'd you.
