The uprights are modified E30 uprights - on the E30 the shock is mounted inside the upright which is a tube design - they chopped the top of the tube and weld in an insert with a thread for a metro ball joint, the factory mount design used the U bracket very similar to what I recreated:

On the E36 the shock is bolted from the back, I don't remember what the upright design looks like on the E36 version but I'll likey a bit different.
