How to install Koni inserts in E36 M3 strut housings
For some mysterious reason, Koni chose to offer strut inserts instead of complete housings for the E36 M3 fitments. This requires the installer to gut the stock housings and modify them to fit the Koni inserts. While this may seem like a daunting task to someone who has never installed Koni inserts before, it's actually pretty easy.
