coilover question
Hi guys!
I'm looking to buy some coilovers soon for my e36 cabrio and I would install it myself.
What I need to know is if I would need to buy any extra parts, like strut mount or etc.
I know I will be buying reinforcement plates, but I'd like to know what else should be added or replaced.

Strut mounts and Rear Shock Mounts are a good idea if you think yours are not in good shape. Sway Bar links & Bushings might be a good idea also if they need replacing.

Everything else can be done after, unless you wanted to do a complete overhaul, then i'd suggest control arms, tie rods, CAB, RTAB and a good alignment when it's all done.

Thanks T.Dot_E30!
I already did a complete front end overhaul, so I I'll check if my rtabs, strut mount and shock mount are still in good condition! =)
