Question 96 M3 - Rear Shock Mounts

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a 96 M3 with 120,000 miles on it. The car itself has virtually no scratches and is in great mechanical shape from the previous owner, however there are some wear-and-tear items that need to be replaced.

I've all ready changed the serpentine belts and spark plugs, I have brake pads/rotors kit on the way, and am going to install rear Bavauto springs (A gift from the previous owner. He also installed matching front ones) with the brakes.

I figure while the wheels are off, it would be worth looking in to other wear-and-tear items. I've heard it's a good idea to replace the shock mounts, but I'm not sure beyond that.

Do you all have thoughts on the rear shock mounts or other items I'm missing? I don't hear any unusual sounds aside from the old brake pads. The water pump impeller is on my list at some point also since it still has the plastic one.

Thanks in advance!
