BMW E36 and E46 - Rear, Upper Shock Mount - Pair, Monoball Style
A known weak point on all 3 series and 3-series based vehicles is the rear upper shock mount and the mounting location.
Performance dampers exacerbate this problem, and it can be ugly!
For whatever reason, this shock mount area is something BMW never got right on the three series from the 1983 until the 2007 modes: the OEM mounts are sloppy and fatigue quickly and the sheet metal area around them can be deformed over time simply by absorbing road irregularities. The stress high performance shocks can apply to the chassis has been know to cause permanent damage (even under daily driving conditions) without antiquate reinforcement!
There is nothing to be scared of here - we have a comprehensive solution:
Many companies make an upper shock mount, but we couldn't find the best out there, so we designed our own with fgeatures we liked from the ones already on the market to Make the best. We make, what we believe are the best performing solid-mount RSM you will find. Structural improvements and quality in these sets are dramatically better next to other "high performance" shock mounts.
Many other mounts (even many performance mounts) are too compliant to allow the shock to receive the feedback from the road surface for top performance from the shock. They may actually hinder the shocks ability to do its job. The common misconception is that without compliance in this area, the shock cannot do its job; this is not the case. Passing the most accurate amount of road feedback into the damper allows lighting fast responses inside of the shock to occur. In fact, with high quality shocks, you could use these mounts on the street, however you would hear a lot more noise as the shock valves operate in addition to more tire and road noise that is transferred into the cabin.
- Solid mount means the damper receive all crucial suspension movement so your high performance suspension can do its job and maintain tire contact patch.
- All important chassis feedback is improved as the driver can feel what the rear tires are doing better than ever.
- Each is fully anodized, with high quality domestic hardware that's strong, the correct length and won't strip
- They also include shock tower reinforcement plates, a necessity and typically sold separately for $30- for free in each set.
We make the best around for track level performance, supremely responsive with a high quality monoball bearing for years of use.
A must have when doing rear shock upgrades for track use, these will save you time, money, and help save your chassis.
