Im getting ready to replace the rear shock mounts on my 95 325i. Do I need any additional hardware to complete the job. (gaskets, spacers, nuts?)

Also, I notice a delicious rotten egg smell when shutting off my car. Its got 160k and original exhaust thats a bit noisy. Any ideas? Cat? Muffler?

Yes, get the Z3 reinforcement plates.
You'll need 3 new lock nuts per side; 2 to hold the mount and 1 to secure the shock. Do not re-use the old ones. I just got them from the dealer.

sulfer smell is indicitive that your cats are shot. Goodluck with that tho, the cheapest i've seen them new is still $500.. THere are places that sell them used for a lot less but who knows what you'll get.

Complete mod list and pics:

You'll also need the gaskets, many RSM's sold don't include it. But you can also make them out of the boxes that the mounts come in. Just don't install the mounts without them.
