About halfway down the page.

For the rears you just cut the bump stops per eibach instructions. I just used a universal bellow style you cut and zip tie the ends for the rear dust cover.
Thanks for the help! Really appreciate the info.

Not to flame, but this is not a true statement. The 335i eibachs are fine for the 335xi. Problem is people retain the stock bumpstops on a now lowered car. That is why the cars feels bottomed out, which it is. The 1" lowered stance needs approx. 1" shorter bumpstops.

I got the same setup and I like it. I had the bump stops cut out as the instructions state.
I do believe that the Eibach springs (designed for 335i not xi) dont handle the weight of the XDrive well, reason why the feel of bottoming out on bumps.
