How to Modify an E9 shock to fit the NK: In Process

I had no idea this sort of thing could be done and had despaired since discovering that the rear shocks for my car are available only in the Bilstein Sport configuration, not the best set-up for street driving. And they cost far too much - with shipping from Germany - to be cost-efficient for the average person.

In Ben's own words:

"The first step of the sleeving process. I've pressed a brass valve guide into the mounting bushing at the bottom of the shock. Now I'll drill out the sleeve to fit the 10 mm bolt on your swing arm and then we're all set!"
