Last night when I was installing my new dust boots on my rear shocks I installed some convertable rear shock mounts. It is a noticable difference from the standard mounts and I have a Bilstein BTS kit on my car. The car feels much more solid in the rear and feels more responsive on turn-in. So for those of you looking for a cheep upgrade for your suspension put in a set of convertable rear shock mounts. Once I get the cash I'm going to install some Ground Control polly rear shock mounts with reinforcement plates but for now the convertable mounts are a nice upgrade from the stock ones.

im confused i didn't know the convertable shock mounts were any different? are you sure your not just noticing a difference from putting in new mounts as opposed to old ones...? i guess it would make sense to have diff shock mounts tho seeing as it doesn't have the structual gains of the roof so everything has to be made a little stronger... but ill take your word for it. however its too late my mounts are already in the mail, i think i got the meyle ones... but i can't remember

the convertibles come with stronger rear monuts than the other e30s, though they are interchangeable... the best are polyurethane though

well i guess that makes sence
however pollyurithane makes squeeky noises so its not a good thing for a daily driver, more for track.
