    i think you can get poly bush kits for them

    http://www.superflex.co.uk/proddetai...=SF094-1862KSS

    these might be the right ones.

    up-rated suspension and especially anti roll bars put extra stress on things attached to them.

    How often in terms or mileage are you replacing them? and what is wrong when you do have to replace them?

    Are you having to replace all of them>?

    What rear shock mounts have you got by the way?

    ive broke two one of them was in less than seven days of replacing the new one. ive had no probs since i fitted my coilovers they came with shorter uprated ones.

    hello mate, I know this is an old one but maybe it will help others. I have eibach anti roll bars on my E36 Evo with dampers and springs (not coilovers)and used Meyle Heavy Duty droplinks up front, they are much stronger and chunkier than OEM. I got them from C3BMW link below.
