Coilover mount thread diameter? for new bushings

So i'm looking at upgrading my bushings/mounts to go with my coilover install

i like powerflex

but they have PFR5-416-12 and PFR5-416 (10mm, standard?)

my coilovers are BC Racing, and i have NO IDEA if they're 10mm or 12mm, nowhere can i find this information, and i don't have a 10mm nut handy (or a 12mm one) to check it out

any help?

ED: i'm 99% sure it's 12mm, but it fits in the OEM mount? which is 10mm? how does this work?

actually, a couple more questions... say i want to get everything on this list:

Included in the E9X Mount Kit:
front upper strut mounts (also known as a guide support), 31306775098 (higher quality than 31336760943 strut mount)
A. rear upper-top shock mounts, 33506771737
B. rear upper-middle shock mounts, 33506767010
C. rear upper-bottom shock mounts, 33506771738
D. rear upper supporting cup, 33526764418 (sits over bumpstop)
rear lower shock mount (installs on spring arm), 33526768544


from powerflex.. everything they have at least

which parts would i get?

or does

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BMW-E81-1...ht_2562wt_1163

cover ALL of the rear mounting parts? (pending whether i need the 10mm or 12mm?).. and that includes http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/33526764418/ES58471/ - would i even need a new one of those?

and i'm assuming because i have front pillowball mounts, i don't need

http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/31306775098/ES2580446/

.. yeah no. ok that's cool


and is there an uprated/powerflex or anything else equivalent to: http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/33526768544/ES2580448/ ?

BC's use a camber plate up front, so you do not need front upper strut mounts......as for the rear, I haven't done it to say what to go with

Thanks, yeah i figured

And the front bottom mount is a solid one rather than a rubber one

I might just get the 12mm powerflex, it looks like all 3 parts and my 10mm lug wouldn't fit over the thread - bottom mount i can't find anything other than oe *shrug*
