Copy and paste it or don't- that's fine. I'm sure I'm right. The only questionable area is 04/01-09/01.

I was considering getting a shock dyno of some working stock shocks (sport pre and post 01) and koni's that I have, but then I was told I'm weird for considering that.

Did you know about the M Tech shocks made for 5 months? I sure as hell didn't (until another member told me so recently).
For all intents and purposes, Meyle arms=ZHP arms=///M3 arms are all identical in that they have solid balljoints. There would be no difference in steering feel. if anything, they meyles would feel better/more direct since they have stiffer control arm bushings.

I already squashed this to death in another thread with the help of someone else. even the non-M nylon inner balljoint arm has the same casting as the ZHP arm. only the inner balljoint differs.

moral of the story=there's absolutely no magic to the zhp arms over any other all-metal arm like Meyle.

i'll edit the part#s soon. it really gives me a headache looking at all those #s.
