Default Drop links for rs bars

I’ve found 3 choices- Tarrett, Elephant, and good old Porsche. It seems to me that aside from looks they will all get the job done well. Pss10’s at RS height. Wallet says go with Porsche.....

Factory ones last the longest, hands down.

The fountain of knowledge! Thanks Steve – I'll go with the factory stuff.

The rear drop links are the same as the non-rs variants - are they not?

The factory are not adjustable correct? Depending on your height and alignment that can be beneficial.

They are not adjustable, however a proper cornerweight job usually leaves very little preload. One should remember that any monoball/spherical joints used on a street car can wear rather quickly (depending on environmental conditions) mandating frequent replacement.

Thanks again Steve.

Are the rear rear links different right to left?

My bad,...L & R ARE different. I was thinking of another chassis.

That's what figured but there are 2 different numbers in the parts manual. Just a parts number thing I suppose. When I worked parts at a BMW indie there were many such quirks.

Thanks!
