Top Mounts with shock replacement?

I'm about to have my eibach pro and Bilstein B4S' fitted.

Is it advisable to fit new top mounts and bump stops (helper springs) at the same time or does everyone reuse the current ones?

My car is on 103k if this makes a difference!

I would always change the top mounts at the same time, false economy no too.

Totally agree.Yours are likely to be well worn at that mileage and as you're getting a nice new set up,it would be a waste not to.
I did and mine were well worn with a fraction of your mileage...

Hi Phil,

I just changed the suspension on mine, i have changed all the suspension mounts front and rear.

For the top mounts, i think they are 31306775098 , I bought mine off ebay, made by febi bilstein (approx 60 for both), Genuine bmw one is about 75 per side.

I have a list of parts number somewhere, with all the bits that I order for suspension change.

Cheers
sam
