BMW E46 rear coilover reinforcment plates
The e46 had rear cast aluminum arms which will not hold up to the load focused on the center with a coilover setup. Why is this? It was designed for a spring which would sit on a larger area (spreading the load over the arm). Coilover springs are not only smaller in diameter, but are also usually stiffer. This means that the load will be focused on a much smaller surface and WILL brake the cast aluminum arms. Protect yourself and your e46!
Installation is simple. Just put our rear reinforcement kits between the spring and arm. Our plates will then spread the area the load is dispersed on, making it SAFE to run coilovers on your e46.
Reinforcement plates are made from stainless so they will not rust and are ready to go on the car. Only 1/8 thick (smaller then the factory rubber seat). Sold in pairs.
