    Hi everyone I'm fitting some fk coilovers on my mums z4 and was wondering what to do with the top mounts. Do I remove both these nuts pictured and just use the nyloc on the top mount? Thanks Daz

    To answer my own question you don't use the other nut just the nyloc as the strut top bearing sits onto the washer pictured. Was a pretty easy job rear shocks was a bit of a pain but got there in the end.

    Well the car handles loads better now the rides not as harsh and crashy if that makes sense? The shocks and springs that were on before we're the BMW sport option, which were all pretty much knackered after 10years so I suppose anything would feel better.
