kw street comforts installed, but i have a question...

I installed my kw street comfort coils this weekend and just got my four wheel alignment done by BMW. Installed on a 2010 335i m sport e90 and i have a question, in the photo provided the shock body did not have the tangs circled but had the guide pins with the arrow. I inspected the shock body very well and there was no damage as if they were once on but broken off. Is this normal or should they be there because as i stated there was nothing indicating broken tangs or shock body damage.

they should be there. Though, if not and everything installed with no issue i wouldnt worry to much. Just make sure that knuckle is tight and torqued.

Yea no issues and all torqued with a BMW suspension inspection. I may see if my neighbor can weld tangs to the body for piece of mind knowing they should be there. Plenty of room to work with the wheel off i should just need to loosen the knuckle bolt spread the collar and shimmy the shock body up and then back down once he is done. If this seems unecessary though i may just leave it as is. BTW thanks for the quick reply.

No doubt, ive got to get the spring rate dialed in but that should all be done by the weekend and once it is done i will give it a week of daily/spirited driving and report back.
