Hi All,

After some enthusiastic driving this week the car delevloped a knocking sound from the rear. After some inspection, it is obvious the rear shock mounts have given up. Was thinking of fitting some uprated ones. Can anyone recommend any brand or shall I just go for an oem set?

Thanks in advance!

I used rogue engineering ones from the US. Can pick you up a set in a couple of weeks if helpful?

Sounds good but I need to get car back on the road pretty quick as its used for the school run! Probably take just as long if I tried to get them shipped! Thanks for the offer... :)

You can add the Z3 reinforcement plates to make them a bit stronger..
