I am riding on Pss9's on my 330i and have recently heard strange noises coming from the shocks. I checked out the shocks and to my suprise, one of my rear tires seems to be riding on nothing but springs. I have heard that PSS9's have a tendency to go bad because of a prematurely worren out washer. I want to know if anyone else has had this problem, and where I can get replacement washers for it.

Has the shock disengaged from the lower shock mount? If so, you need to reattach and place a large washer under the head of the bolt that holds the lower shock mount to the suspension arm. You can get the washer at any hardware store.

Do you have any idea what size the washer is? I would like to buy them from the local hardware store.
