    All I've got to get now is:
    • Meyle HD control arms (which I can't seem to find a UK distributor for - so will probably need to order from the states)
    • Powerflex bushes (full kit)
    • TPI wheel spacers (3mm front and 15mm rear)

    Still checking the best places/prices for the above.. but probably won't get round to getting it done until the new wheels arrive (which are still a few weeks off yet! )

    Thanks for all your help and advice with the top mounts as well Mark!

    no problems, should be sharp as a razor when you've fitted it all

    WOW! - that was quick!!!

    got home today to find my camber/pillowball top mounts had arrived - as had all my bits and pieces from BMW and my TPI 3mm wheel spacers for the front!! (still undecided as to whether I go for 12mm or 15mm for the rear....)

    another update! - just ordered the Meyle HD control arms from the US (best price I could find) and the same place (Double 02 Salvage on eBay) who is shipping the rear Meyle HD RSM's to me as well - they seem like a decent enough company and have great comms and good prices - should all be here in around 7-11 business days.. I was going to use FCPGroton again for them as I've used them a lot in the past and have a discount code for them.. but even then they couldn't match the price!..

    also just ordered the full Powerflex Polybush kit from Larkspeed - so now all I have left to get is the rear TPI wheel spacers (when I eventually decide on width!!) and front and rear end links/sway bar mounts...

    PMSL!!!.. there's plenty of pictures!.. there will be a LOT more when all the parts arrive and they're fitted - I've kind of just been topping up this thread as I went along to keep track of everything - once it's all done then I write a more detailed thread with a lot more pics covering the full suspension project.. I just didn't think anyone would be too interested in pictures of:



    which is kind of what everything looks like just now!!..

    thanks!! - I checked them before and couldn't find the Meyle HD control arms listed?.. either way I've got both delivered for £195 from the States.. which was the best price I could find when I checked..
