Dinan (if you can find them) on Koni (requires OE casings for cut-n-gut).

I recommend E46M3/Convertible Rear Shock Mounts and Z3 RSM Reinforcement Plates.

Add 1996+M3 Strut Tower Reinforcement Plates if you don’t have them.

All that cut n gut sounds quite complicated. Are there any easier solutions?

Thanks

Use bilstein shocks. They don't use inserts and replace the whole assembly. That said, the Konis are far better shocks.
Other option is get coils.

Using a drill motor and a Lisle Cut-Off Tool #31500, the whole process is under four hours.

Rear shocks are ~ 2 hours, less if you build up the assembly before hand.

It is pretty easy if you have a drill and either a grinder with a cutoff wheel or a sawzall. I'm pretty sure cutting the strut and installing the insert only took me about 30 minutes for both struts. That is not counting removal and installation on the car.

OP, what spring rates did you decide on?

Another vote for TCK DA. Surprisingly good street ride and they've done an awesome job on the track. Went with the track settings for compression and rebound on the setup sheet and haven't had to touch it. Car is very well balanced.
