    Hi

    Gonna be changing springs and shocks on my M3 evo and was wondering what other parts i should replace on the the top of the shock?

    Gonna change the top mount for sure, just want to know if any other bits are worth renewing?? (any ideas on prices would be helpful too)

    Thanks

    Can't wait to do this to mine.

    A proven upgrade for the E36 is to use E46 rear top mounts and Z3 re-enforcement plates.

    I'd probably also do all bushes like the RTAB etc. Drop links? Eibach ARB's?

    same again really. Just had the front wishbones and drop links done on mine and it now feels great.

    stomper: its very common especially if uprated shocks are being used! you should check yours unless you've put the re-enforcement plates in already! luckily it only cost 35 quid to be stitched up and a plate welded over it!

    We do have a little family! lol. My mums E46 325ci with full ac schnitzer kit inside and out and my bro's E36 318is (pesters me to borrow the M3 all the time, tell him to get stuffed coz i know how he drives )
