    Strut mounts and spring cups

    Thanks - this would make sense. Thanks for the offer - I have seen an online copy (bookmarked). Will post another update tomorrow, hopefully with the car ready to drive.

    Strut mounts and spring cups

    Garage confirmed just now it’s the 34990 top mount that is currently fitted. Question - I’m fitting Eibach pro to the front only, as there is no option for the rear with SLS equipped cars. The rear sits quite nicely, as does the front, however I decided new spring would be prudent with new shocks The garage advise that side by side, the new springs (p/n 2014 001 VA) are approx 4” shorter than what came off (69k miles old). Once built up, the leg with the new Eibach is 2” shorter than the other front leg with the old spring still fitted. Is this expected? The new spring is slightly thicker than the old one but he was surprised at the difference considering they were only supposed to lower 25-30mm. New genuine 9mm spring pad fitted to the top, new genuine 3mm pads fitted to the bottom.

    That’s interesting - I don’t see a ‘Sport’ related option code based on my VIN. Could l have been retrofitted I guess, however the previous owner was an elderly chap, so seems unlikely.

    Thank you WC If the parts all arrive in time, including the Eibach Pro fronts I have coming from Poland, this should be done this coming week; I’ll update the thread with what was removed from the car and what combination of parts were newly fitted.

    Thanks - will take some measurements tomorrow (Sunday) From the ZF catalog, the parts with green highlights are what i have or will have - i will have both 39080 and 34990 equivalent top mounts. It states below the 34990 top mount is for sport suspension only (mine is not); It also states 312393 insert is for car without lowered Suspension, but with Axle Vers: Sportfederung - does anyone know what the latter means?

    Quality of them isn’t great though, some areas where the paint is not quite even. Some fine scratches too. Saying that the paintwork isn’t great on mine so they don’t look too new if that makes sense.

    I find it very easy to upload from my iPhone - you can adjust sizes just before you upload too

    Sir - the car is a 12/1991 build the Mapco strut mounts I have ordered in addition to the ones pictured at the start of the thread is the equivalent of the 39437 part ie: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193097855858 I will do what I can do maintain the original specification; maybe somewhat foolish, but makes me feel better.

    Genuine parts fitted: New wipers - made by bosch and alas only a blank circle where the old ones had a BMW logo - disappointing New oil cap New expansion tank cap New rear bumper plastics

    Still quite new to this but I believe EDC was not fitted to all cars with SLS - ie, you could have SLS or SLS w/EDC - with the latter mainly (only?) on M5

    Ive been told SLS is fitted to the rear only - standard shocks on the front. I hope so at least!

    I knew there was something wrong with the photo when I looked at it For the sake of avoiding more downtime, I’ve ordered 2x equivalent of the 39437 part. I should be covered.

    I’ve just ordered spring pads from Cotswold for the front (9mm upper, 3mm lower was their advice) - I asked re strut mount, he said the part number should be 31331134096 Which happens to be the 2 part item.... I think a case of wait and see
