Anyone have a front mono ball kit installed?

I'm looking at getting either the Fall Line or Dinan mono ball kit for my F82. Was wondering if anyone local has a set installed on their F8X and willing to give me a ride so I can get a sense of what the NVH is like before I bite the bullet...I'm located in Tysons Corner, VA.

I have the BimmerWorld FCAB installed on my M4 and there's no measurable change in NVH. I also have GC camber plates and MCS 2WR dampers installed - camber plates did increase NVH slightly.

Did you ever end up installing the Dinan mono ball kit? Just picked up the kit for my F80 and will have it installed in the next couple weeks. Any tips for the install?

I have the fall line ones but the installation should be pretty identical. When you remove the thrust arm, it's easier to remove the wheel liner to get access to the bolt rather than going from under the car. It's a super long bolt too so you'll need to unbolt the radiator (just one screw if i remember correctly) and move it out of the way to fish out the bolt. Other than that it's pretty straight forward popping out the bushing and pressing in the bearing. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Appreciate the info. Didn't realize the radiator may need to be moved out of the way. I'm guessing no alignment was needed after the install?

You can see the radiator in this pic. There's one on each side. And I didn't do an alignment. Tech didn't feel it was necessary.
