I'll be ordering a full set soon. My only question is, can I use the factor M-sport spring in the M3 camber links... ? Also, will I have to purchase a new lower spring perch pad... ?

Currently have Bilstein B8's & don't plan on going coil-over for me slightly modified 335i DD.

You can't use non M3 lower spring pad as isn't flat on the bottom and will collapse under load. Additionally, the shocks aren't interchangeable. Not sure if you have them, if not you would need M3 shocks as well.

Thank you man. I saw the upper spring perches / pads were the same exact part #. But, the lower spring perches / pads were not. So this confirms some last minute items I wanted to make sure about before ordering.

And I was fully aware about the M3 shocks being an absolute must back there. It was simply the spring pads I was concerned about.

Greatly appreciate your help!

Monroe upper mounts are 10mm and M3 are 12mm so that won't work. Unless you get a different cylinder sleve or you bore out the 10mm one to accept 12mm shaft. Did you knew that? ( I saw you were asking about the mounts on the other thread)

Thank you man & I didn't know that. Yes, I'm installing E9X M3 rear camber links & shocks on my 2011 335i sedan. So, I'm glad you mentioned this to me beforehand. You guys are the experts & have saved me many headaches down the line.

I wonder if Monroe makes these shock mounts for the M3... ? I'm assuming they probably don't though unfortunately.

If you're using M3 Camber links, you could buy Bilstein B8 M3 rear shocks, they sell them separately.

Since I’ll be doing a full M3 rear end swap, which, yes, will include the camber links. I just wanted to know: what are my dampening options for static suspension? Koni’s were my go to but now they aren’t an option because: 1) They aren’t made M3 specific and 2) TCK/Koni’s cost more than what I got the entire M3 rear end for.

That only leaves me with Stock OEM or Bilstein, correct?

Are there any other options for rear M3 dampers than those? And if so, what would be the best setup with Swift Spec R springs? I am coming from stock M-Sport suspension and am using this car as a DD yet don’t mind a (somewhat) stiffer ride. However, I most likely won’t be tracking as I have another car for that so I’d also like the car to be as comfortable as possible while still running whatever setup need to in order to run the M3 suspension bits/Swift Spec R/LSD. I plan on using Dinan’s 12mm upper shock mount kit to compensate for the reduced ride height/M3 dampers and fully complete my rear damper upgrade; but besides that, which damper should I use?
