    Oh cool, let me know if you need any help, but my diy skills are extremely novice.
    Sounds good. It should all be pretty easy and straightforward as all the parts are pretty new (replaced about 10k miles ago and mid-last year.

    I'm wondering as the Genuine BMW mount on your site is ~$90 so this kit shouldn't be lower, but then again the sachs and Lemf mounts are $23-35, so a few bolts and washers can't cost $40+.
    The Value Line products are pre-packaged from BMW and are actually cheaper compared to the individual part. I believe OE manufacturer on the mount is Sachs.

    Well I'm in the middle of doing the rear shocks and realized I can't figure out which part of the lower shock bushing goes toward the car/attaching point. One sticks out longer than the other and my common sense tells me the short side goes to the car so that it's less force/torque on the bolt, but I could be way off. Can't find any info online figured I'd post here.

    This is my guess, but would like to hear from someone with more than a guess

    Based on what Koni told me, I'm missing a washer that looks just like the one in d-rod's photo (by the bolt head), so I will just put the provided silver one there. D-rod do you have another washer between the shock and axle mating surface or just the big red washer by the bolt head?

    From what I remember the big red washer youíre referring to was part of the assembly. I didnít think to pry on it to see if it comes off. They did provide a silver metal washer which I used.
