    Yes, hence the backwards compatibility part listed in that article,

    And the Z3 being very much on a E36 platform.(Also known as a Z3 E36/7 for the Roadster or E36/8 for the Coupe).

    I can PM you where if you want and I will explain why it is through PM and not on post

    Yes I was told the E46 M3 sets would do, I was told, but I wanted something stronger, for peace of mind, thus went for the Rouge Engineering ones.

    Drop links are not an issue on the E36 as the attach from the roll bar top the lower arm. They dont fix to the shock at all unless its a reall early one or an M3.

    Drop links are an issue on the E46 as they attach to the strut, if the e46 is lowered too much on standard links they bend.
