BMW sheet metal at the top of the rear shock towers in E30, E36, and E46 BMW cars are a well-known weak point. The metal tends to tear over time, especially if stiffer shocks are used. This is really cheap insurance to not need to repair shock mounts in the future which is known to be costly. There is a reason BMW sells replacement shock tower replacements (41148169028) that need to be welded in. AVOID ALL OF THAT WITH THESE.

These Garagistic reinforcement rear shock tower plates are made from 2.6mm thick steel which is the standard thickness of OEM BMW reinforcements. They can be welded in or used as-is. These come unpainted/uncoated so you can paint them to match your car.

It's a very "bolt-on and go" solution, and are precision machined out of a heavier metal to withstand the abuse of racing and lowering. Designed to fit on top of the factory shock mount (inside the trunk). It will distribute the load over a larger area to prevent failure. It can also be used to repair already damaged towers. Set of two which is enough to do E30s, E36s, E46s, and Z3s.


In Box: Price is for a pair (2 units). Enough to do 1 car.

Material: Mild Steel - 2.6mm thick
