i need e30 suspension help
 
i have a 86 325es im looking to lower it with a good handling kit. i have m3 rear axle and 5 lug front. any suggestions lookin for like a 2.5 or 3 rear drop and 2 or 1.5 front drop. also looking for a body kit nothing crazy just clean and square

thanks

why would you wanna drop the back more then the front? drop it more in the front so it has a nice wreck

DJHayter 12-02-2012 12:07 PM

because the back end already sits higher naturally dropping it the way i want to will make it sit really nice

Anything thing good is going to cost in the adjustable arena. Ground Control would be my top pick. Coilover conversions or there coilovers. Strut & spring setups are cheaper but non-adjustible. H&R and Ebach are best. Shocks should be Koni's or Bilstiens. Don't settle for a cup kit from some other manufacture.

alright thanks should i get them for a m3 or a 325 they should be relatively the same right

No, E30 M3 is five lug. Different suspention entirely. Buy parts for your car.

DJHayter 12-04-2012 08:43 PM

this is why im asking because i stated that i have m3 suspension (5 lug) in my 325

Tkaczuk 12-04-2012 09:14 PM

E30 M3, Z3, or E36 ti? Front and rear?

DJHayter 12-04-2012 09:22 PM

e30 m3 im pretty sure 5 lug in front also. if there is any way to know for sure i can check and let you know. i am just going on what i was told from the guy i bought it from. this i why i have bought a suspension kit i am just not sure what i have
