That would be perfect if the R/T setup is somewhat similar for the M3.

Thanks!
Ohlins R&T will have more compliance than OE, but with a lot more control. There should be at least 6-8 guys with them on their 1M or M3, but not all are forum posters.

to get it down, or possibly it's the end links. (edit2: the clunk is back)
Top nut is where I would check first as well.

Double check your sway bar endlinks, make sure all 4 nuts are tight, and some loctite will ensure they don't come loose again.

How hard did you hit the pothole? Sometimes the camber plate bearing can get damaged if the impact is severe enough.
