Just an "FYI" if you are able to install the bushings, you'll need to place the washers on the outside surfaces of the upper and lower stock rubber bushings - this is what allows you to preload the rear bushings.

I wonder if you're supposed to increase the hole diameter on the stock bushings and then slide them over the supplied metal sleeves before installing everything, including the washers, onto the new damper shaft?

At this point, given the manufacture's lack of support, personally I'd pull the suspension off of my car and send it back to them...if they can't address this simple issue, what's going to happen if you run into a major issue? There are a lot of other suspension options available for the e9x M3
