OP your M3 arms looked to be installed correctly. Upper arm should bend upward with the forward link should bend downwards. Here are pics from my 135i.

I think your problem is with your bump stops. On the upper spring perch.. there should be a rubber bump stop to prevent the car from bottoming out.

Have you tested IF your rear shocks are blown out? Try compressing the shock off the car. This could be the cause.

IDK about those plastic spacers on the shock body. Looks sketchy to me.

As for your tire rubbing on the RR... I would buy a set of 5mm or 7mm spacers for the wheel WITH new bolts. $100. 10mms will rub.
