@ 42k miles your stock shocks are probably weak. This doesn't affect your ride height, though. If your left (driver's side) is lower then the right then you might have a problem with the springs or something. The right side is supposed to be a little lower than the left - maybe .5" but it can vary. Go ahead and replace the shock mounts while you're in there. You can use the ones from the 325i convertible or the JTDesigns. IIRC JTD's come in 'his' and 'hers'. You definatly want the 'hers' for the street. IMO you should wait on the trailing arm bushings until there's a problem to fix but if you hear another opinion that's based on more experience with those then listen to it.

Good luck!

: It's a 97 with 42K miles. I've got Eibachs on stock shocks and I'm pretty sure they're blown (L rear is lower than R rear). Since I'm purchasing Bilstein's, I am curious as to what else I should replace ie. strut mounts, trailing arm bushings etc. Any experience with JT Design's strut mounts? Thanks guys.
