KW V3 squeak?

I'm getting KW V3's installed on my car tomorrow, and I just read this:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=243156

Any of you guys with KW's on the M3 right now, do you hear any sqeaking? Do you have problems with the coilovers?

Thanks for any info.

Maybe it's the perch squeaking? I had that problem in my E46, I put a piece of rubber under the perch on one side and that fixed it.

There was a bulletin for E46s to fix the squeaking. You had to remove the springs andput talcum powder on the rubber spring pads. Not sure if this will apply to E9X's.

They are perfect, proper installation is key. Save on the parts not the labor - you pay for what you get.
