Me and my bro are gonna put the stock 130k suspension to rest and he told me to get mounts before even thinking of opening the box of coilovers i got (fair enough)

for RSMs ive been looking at the meyle HDs

for the strut mounts I dont know if i should be looking for OEM or aftermarket

what do you guys think?

When upgrading to an aftermarket suspension that is stiffer than stock, I highly recommend using the reinforced M3 upper strut mounts and strut/shock tower reinforcement plates (front & rear). They are much better suited to withstand the additional strain of a stiff suspension than your stock 325 mounts.

Just make sure you get the correct ones depending on the FCABs you're using/plan to use.

Please tell me you have at least replaced the stock suspension with OEM parts in that 130k miles...

From what my mom told me the shocks were replaced (maybe, but doubt it cause those things are like basketballs) struts: i dont think so at ALL.
:dunno:
