I think you misunderstood me Petriej, I don't plan to mix and match. I am just wondering how I can replace the rear springs as one of them has broken. Since I need to replace the pair, would it be an issue if I chose to go with another e36 set (Non m technic) with just normal (non sport) shocks?

An indy shop I go to in Indy (ha ha), suggested replacing the rears with E30 springs - said it would not be any issue! At least I am still thinking of replacing with non m technic e36 springs.
