I used TRW, while piece. Will get Len this time.

I don't get any juddering or vibration that i can tell and generally at highway speeds I don't hear any of the noises i hear around town at 20-30mph.

Same with mine. Had no vibrations or steering issues. ONLY CLUNKS when driving thru bumps and braking at slow speeds.

I only heard this clunk while braking moving forward and not while going in reverse.

"rebuilt shocks on both sides with all of the rubber pieces replaced and new upper strut mount."

does this include #8 and #10? RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog

These mount were close to completely disintegrating when I installed front lowering springs. This got rid of a similar noise.

I'm experiencing a similar rattle noise from the front left when going over small bumps. Have recently replaced lower control arms, struts, tie rods. I didn't do the shock mounts, so will do those next along with upper wishbones. If I resolve the issue I'll reply back.

The SF streets must have tore the bushings. This is why I'm looking towards installing solid or urethane bushings to replace the bushing in the tension arm. Or, I might just replace them every couple years. Luckily, ordered these Lemforders from FCP who offers a lifetime guarantee on parts.

I've only had my replacements on for about 10K miles and can feel some play on the bushing end by barely trying to rotate the arm while I'm on my back.
