Default Z3 Rear Shocks on Ti

Hi all, I figured I would post this as it saved myself a decent amount of money. I changed out my rear blown OEM shocks for KYB Z3 rears. I'll post a little DIY and what I used. Before though huge thanks to bluebimma for the help! Parts: KYB GR-2/Excel-G 343330 http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/s...8&autoModClar= 2 Fastenal M12X1.5 70MM Bolts (longer because of bottom shock mount) 2 Fastenal M12 Locking Washers Here are some photos completed. I also did the mounts and AKG plates.

Many years later, I am looking for what needs changed to run the Z3 shocks on my own TI, and it looks like only the lower shock mount is longer side to side? That's a big woo-hoo simple difference. Thanks for the help years earlier.

They’re the same shaft length on both sides
