Ordering Shocks, what else do I need to get?

Welp, it's time. My OEM shocks are so busted, they are leaking fluid.

Im planning on ordering Koni SA from http://www.pure-motorsport.com/ with some after market RSMs from somewhere else.

What other OEM parts on the struts should I order from dealer? I already got the Z3 re-enforcement plates on right now.

Thanks in advance.

You're already getting RSMs, so unless you want to replace the front strut bearings or the bumpstops or something, you should be set.

Check and see which nuts/bolts are used during the swap. Several of the nuts are locknuts which should only be used once. In addition, it may be prudent to have an extra one or two handy in case you strip them or loose them. The worst thing is to not have your car drivable and have to walk/bike across town just to pick up a $0.30 item.

Thanks all, I guess the majority i read, and the replies in this post say to just buy all the nuts involved new.
