30 miles is all you got tho?? Either it was installed totally incorrectly or the part was faulty. There is another possibility but it is more extreme- on E36 M3's it is known that the entire rear shock mounting sheetmetal can tear from inside the trunk. To fix it requires rewelding and I could imagine that the angle of which the rear shock sits would be compromised, thus causing the RSM to pop.. Again this is not too common and the RSM is faulty to begin with, but to check for torn sheetmetal obviously look around the base of the shock tower and look for the tell tale rough weld spots. I would buy alumimun RSM's next and buy a bently manual instead of that chilton's you got there.
